PRIVATE EQUITY REAL ESTATE

About

We deliver downside protected, superior risk adjusted profitability by carefully handpicking each investment. We implement disciplined value-added programs. We focus on select investment platforms to create economies of scale, operating expertise, and exit optionality.

Westside’s investment philosophy is a defensive one, yet it is responsive to changing market dynamics. Westside targets investments at attractive relative values that offer competitive income returns and the potential for value appreciation. Preservation of capital, downside protection and stability of cash flows are key elements of the firm’s investment approach.

While maintaining our disciplined investment focus, Westside’s mission is to help our stakeholders achieve long-term profitability that is resilient to economic cycles. We win by building mutually rewarding, long-term relationships within the real estate community. We care about our relationships with our financial partners, sellers, buyers, service providers, business partners, employees and most importantly our tenants and customers who benefit from our portfolio holdings in their everyday life.

We place the interests of our financial partners before our own. Integrity, discipline, and trustworthiness are critical to our growth and success. We care about improving the communities people live in through our investment program.

Real estate

Our Approach

IDENTIFY

We identify high-quality, income-producing assets at discounts to replacement cost or make corporate investments at discounts to their intrinsic value and with existing cash flows.

IMPROVE

We increase the value by proactively tackling any physical, operating or management issues through aggressive asset management and position the investments along the value chain.

INTEGRATE

Once assets are secure, we recapitalize the investments and integrate them alongside with our other investment holdings or, in selected cases, we sell the assets.

Overview

Investment Philosophy

Westside capitalizes on inefficiencies in real estate markets to acquire high quality cash-flowing assets at discounts to replacement cost. Such inefficiencies can result from sellers’ strategic motivation, off-market situations, investing in markets or assets that are perceived as less favorable, and complex acquisitions that require capital markets knowledge in both private and public markets.

Westside’s approach to all acquisitions generally creates immediate value, but the asset management expertise in both real estate operations and capital market dynamics are important in the execution of the business plan. Value-enhancement strategies to improve an investment value of the firm’s holdings include targeted capital improvements, aggressive leasing and operational plans to grow income, focus on risk management, proactive asset management, utilization of prudent leverage to enhance returns, and opportunistic sale or recapitalization of assets at optimal times.

Westside focuses its investment activity within select investment themes related to chosen geographical markets and real estate asset classes within which the firm creates fully-integrated platforms. Such strategy allows for an additional level of value enhancement resulting from economies of scale, operating expertise and exit optionality. Westside considers all relevant macroeconomic data and gathers excessive market intelligence in the segments it invests in.
