Richmond, Virginia, May 31, 2017– Battle Monument Partners (BMP), a Richmond private equity fund focused on the veteran community, has completed financing its $5.0 Million inaugural fund, STRAC Fund I.

“We are proud of the support from Battle Monument Partners during our Salute to Sacrifice event in Washington, DC.” said John Coogan, Executive Director of The Folded Flag Foundation. “We look forward to a sustained relationship with BMP that benefits our Gold Star Families.”

West Point grads launch $5M real estate fund
July 7, 2016 – John Oliver used to say “put eyes on the objective” in a wartime context. Now, he uses the motto as a business principle.
“It’s probably the most important thing you can do in a military operation,” said Oliver, a 1989 graduate of the United States Military Academy and veteran of Operation Desert Storm. “And it’s the same thing when we buy a property. We take it pretty seriously.”
The “we” Oliver refers to are West Point classmates Tim Abbott and Mike Brumagin, who along with Oliver are managing partners of Richmond private equity firm Battle Monument Partners. They founded the firm in 2014 to invest in single-tenant commercial properties in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic.
