Common Equity

Common Equity is the riskiest component of investment for a commercial real estate project. This means that all the investors have equal participation in the money invested and in each potential profit or loss. No individual investor is given priority on how their capital is treated. Since all the investors are allowed to pay at the same time common equity carries the highest attendant risk. If the deal performs well then common equity investments achieve profitability. 

Calculating Common Equity: –

Common Equity = Common stock + Surplus Capital + Retained earning
