1 A Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) is a legal trust created under Delaware law in which each investor owns an undivided fractional interest in a commercial property. The DST structure allows accredited investors to purchase fractional interests in a commercial property, receiving all the benefits of property ownership without any of the burdens of property management. According to Mountain Dell Consulting, the preeminent DST consulting firm, the DST market has grown significantly from raising $1 billion in 2015 to $8.66 billion in equity raised through the end of November 2022.
