Lotfi's absolute performance-oriented investment philosophy is based on research, experience & local knowledge. This approach results in focused investment strategies that concentrate on specific Mixed-Use types, targeted markets & appropriate life cycle stage. By focusing on the forces that we believe create value, we identify properties that we believe are poised to rebound from excess supply shocks or short-term downturns in demand.
Lifecycle strategies include acquiring core plus assets in markets with indicators that the markets are poised to rebound. This is intended to capture the reward of an improving local market with minimal leasing risk. The second strategy is acquiring value-add mismanaged assets. This allows us to use our experience in redevelopment to seek to create value where both capital participants & space users are in balance. The third strategy is to look at development, which seeks to take advantage of markets when capital markets have driven the price of assets above replacement cost.
