Value Strategy

The Value Strategy focuses on value based real estate investments throughout the capital structure across the United States, with an emphasis in strong secondary markets and select high growth tertiary markets.

The Strategy targets several property types, with a heavy emphasis towards multifamily assets to capitalize on the supply/demand imbalance particularly within class B assets that are primed for capital and operational improvements.

As the current market expansion becomes the second longest in United States history, the Value Strategy started prioritizing more conservative preferred equity and mezzanine debt positions that are expected to outperform in the event of a market correction as well as during periods of distress.
