We implement our knowledge and experience within this category. We take on portfolios or properties, which require improvements either physically at the building, management, operational or they suffer from capital constraints. Properties within a value-add strategy are leveraged between 40% and 60% and face a medium to high risk, but also provide a medium to high return on investment.
Real Estate within this category can be considered as high risk asset, which can deliver also a high return after the manager has implemented his improvement strategy. This can mean an investment in a property, which is rundown or has major problems such as asbestos. We take on this challenge, removes the asbestos of the building, refurbishes the building in order to sell it on for a higher price. An opportunistic strategy can also mean the management of the development project. The level of leverage can be 60% or higher.
