Investment Philosophy

Avant_InvestmentPhilosophy

The firm’s principal investing activities¬†focus on acquiring well-located properties generating significant in-place income, and enhancing the value of each asset through the proficiency of its in-house property management professionals. In evaluating acquisitions, certain overriding investment principles guide our decisions:

  • Reliable and stable sources of distributable income;

  • Risk mitigation through diversification;

  • Barriers to entry for future competition;

  • Competiveness of targeted acquisitions or clear opportunity to enhance target to full physical competitiveness within its submarket;

  • Markets that benefit from diverse drivers of growth; and

  • Moderate leverage.

Investors may access property investments through both commingled funds and separate accounts. Our investment vehicles typically pursue core, core-plus or value-added strategies.
