Item 1. Schedule of Investment.

CC Real Estate Income Fund, formerly NorthStar Real Estate Capital Income Fund (the “Company” or the “Registrant”), a Delaware statutory trust that is registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”), as a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company, intends to invest substantially all of its assets in CC Real Estate Income Master Fund (the “Fund”), a separate non-diversified, closed-end management investment company with the same investment objectives and strategies as the Company.

As of March 31, 2019, the Company invested $29,900,230 in the Fund, representing approximately 99.8% of the Company’s net assets and approximately 85.8% of the Fund’s net assets.

The Company invests substantially all of its assets in the Fund. As such, the Company determines the net asset value (“NAV”) of its common shares of beneficial interest, par value $0.001 per share (“common shares”), daily based on the NAV of its interest in the Fund (as provided by the Fund). The Company calculates NAV per common share by subtracting liabilities (including accrued expenses and distributions) from the total assets of the Company (the value of its interest in the Fund, plus cash and other assets, including interest and distributions accrued but not yet received), and dividing the result by the total number of its outstanding common shares.

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had $29,956,111 of net assets, 3,356,547 of common shares outstanding and a NAV per common share of $8.92.

Decreasing market values (sell protection) or increasing market values (buy protection) when compared to the notional amount of the swap, represent a deterioration of the referenced entity’s credit soundness and a greater likelihood or risk of default or other credit event occurring as defined under the terms of the agreement.

Under ASC Topic 820, fair value is defined as the price that the Fund would receive upon selling an asset or pay to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction to a market participant in the principal or most advantageous market for the investment. ASC Topic 820 emphasizes that valuation techniques should maximize the use of observable market inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. Inputs refer broadly to the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability, including assumptions about risk. Inputs may be observable or unobservable. Observable inputs are inputs that reflect the assumptions market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Fund. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the assumptions market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. The Fund classifies the inputs used to measure these fair values into the following hierarchy as defined by current accounting guidance:

 
Level 1:
observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;
 
Level 2:
includes inputs such as quoted prices for similar securities in active markets and quoted prices for identical securities where there is little or no activity in the market; and
 
Level 3:
unobservable inputs for which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.

The derivatives shown in this table are reported at their unrealized depreciation at measurement date, which represents the change in the contract’s value from trade date.
(2)    Value includes the premium received with respect to swap contracts.

There were no transfers between levels during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

The Master Fund’s investments as of March 31, 2019 consisted primarily of CMBS, one equity security in a publicly traded REIT, a term loan and a direct affiliated investment. The Master Fund valued its performing CMBS investments by using the midpoint of the prevailing bid and ask prices from dealers on the date of the relevant period end, which were provided by an independent third-party pricing service and screened for validity by such service. For non-performing or distressed investments, if any, the Master Fund will value such investments by using the bid price. There were no non-performing or distressed investments as of March 31, 2019.

The Master Fund periodically benchmarks the bid and ask prices it receives from the third-party pricing service and/or dealers against the actual prices at which the Master Fund purchases and sells its investments. Based on the results of the benchmark analysis and the experience of the Master Fund’s management in purchasing and selling these investments in other investment funds managed by the sponsors, the Master Fund believes that these prices are reliable indicators of fair value. The Master Fund may also use other methods, including the use of an independent third-party valuation service approved by the Board, to determine fair value for securities for which it cannot obtain prevailing bid and ask prices through independent third-party pricing services or independent dealers, or where the Board otherwise determines that the use of such other methods is appropriate. The Master Fund will periodically benchmark the valuations provided by the independent third-party valuation service against the actual prices at which the Master Fund purchases and sells its investments. The Master Fund’s Valuation Committee and Board reviewed the valuation determinations made with respect to these investments and determined that they were made in a manner consistent with the Master Fund’s valuation process.

All level 3 investments have values determined utilizing third party pricing information without adjustment.

The inputs or methodology used for valuing securities are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in those securities. In the event a Board approved independent pricing service is unable to provide an evaluated price for a security or the Advisor believes the price provided is not reliable, securities of the Funds may be valued at fair value as described above. In these instances the Advisor may seek to find an alternative independent source, such as a broker/dealer to provide a price quote, or by using evaluated pricing models similar to the techniques and models used by the independent pricing service. These fair value measurement techniques may utilize unobservable inputs (Level 3).

On a quarterly basis, the Advisor presents the factors considered in determining the fair value measurements and presents that information to the valuation and audit committee.
