The principal executive offices of the Issuer are located at 3 Second Street, Suite 206, Jersey City, NJ 07311.

This Schedule 13D is filed by Spencer B. Haber, a U.S. citizen (the “Reporting Person”). The address of the Reporting Person’s principal office is 680 Washington Boulevard, Seventh Floor, Stamford, CT 06901. The Reporting Person’s principal occupation is to serve in a management capacity with the Reporting Person’s affiliated investment manager.
During the last five years, the Reporting Person has neither been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) nor been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and, as a result of such proceeding, was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.
The Trust Certificates of which the Reporting Person may be deemed to have beneficial ownership are owned by the following persons (the “Other Reporting Persons”): Byway 1 Corp., Elmrock 2 Corp., Pondfield 4 Corp. and Beechwood 6 Corp. The Reporting Person is the managing member of the general partner or investment manager of each of the foregoing entities’ affiliated investment funds.
|Item 3.||Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.|

|Item 4.||Purpose of Transaction.|
The information in Items 2, 3 and 6 of this Schedule 13D is incorporated herein by reference.
The Other Reporting Persons hold the Trust Certificates for investment purposes. The Reporting Person intends to review on a continuing basis the investments in the Issuer by the Other Reporting Persons. The Other Reporting Persons may seek to sell or otherwise dispose of some or all of the Issuer’s securities from time to time, and/or may seek to acquire additional securities of the Issuer from time to time, in each case, in open market or private transactions, block sales or otherwise. Any transaction that any of the Other Reporting Persons may pursue may be made at any time and from time to time without prior notice and will depend on a variety of factors, including, without limitation, the price and availability of the Issuer’s securities, subsequent developments affecting the Issuer, the Issuer’s business and the Issuer’s prospects, other investment and business opportunities available to the Other Reporting Persons, general industry and economic conditions, the securities markets in general, tax considerations and other factors deemed relevant by such Other Reporting Persons or by the Reporting Person.
Except as described in this Schedule 13D, the Reporting Person does not have any present plans or proposals that relate to or would result in any of the actions described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D, although the Reporting Person, at any time and from time to time, may review, reconsider and change his position and/or change his purpose and/or develop such plans.

The Reporting Person may be deemed to indirectly control each of the Other Reporting Persons and thereby have beneficial ownership of the Trust Certificates directly owned by each Other Reporting Person.|
|(b)||The Reporting Person may be deemed to have shared voting and dispositive power with respect to the Trust Certificates directly owned by each Other Reporting Person. Neither the filing of this Schedule 13D nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission that the Reporting Person is the beneficial owner of the Trust Certificates referred to herein for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or for any other purpose. The filing of this statement should not be construed to be an admission that the Reporting Person or any Other Reporting Person are members of a “group” for the purposes of Sections 13(d) and 13(g) of the Exchange Act.|
|(c)||On September 21, 2021, investment funds affiliated with the Other Reporting Persons made open market sales through a broker-dealer of 7,462,727 Trust Certificates for a price per Certificate of $19.00 and aggregate sale proceeds of $141,791,813.|
|Except for the foregoing and as previously reported, the Reporting Person has not effected any transaction in the Trust Certificates in the past 60 days.|
|(d)||To the best knowledge of the Reporting Person, no person other than the Other Reporting Persons has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the securities beneficially owned by the Other Reporting Persons identified in this Item 5.|

The description of the agreement contained in this Item 6 is not intended to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such agreement, which is incorporated by reference herein.
After reasonable inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
