Investment Philosophy

 

 

 

TARGET GEOGRAPHIC MARKETS & SUBMARKETS

Hillcrest’s geographic focus will primarily include the top 25 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) in the U.S., and their emerging submarkets, that exhibit population, economic, and job growth generally driven by healthcare, a knowledge base, and technology.

Result…Yield attractive investment opportunities and superior returns for the portfolio

Downside Protection in Investment Structure

We seek a minimum target debt yield / IRR equal to 200-400 bps greater than market cap rates.

 

Result…Downside protection in event of tenant defaults

Portfolio Construction with Upside Potential

We focus on office, multi-family, retail, hotel and industrial properties. These are sustainable asset classes with liquidity provisions
 

Result…Upside potential though submarket growth and asset-level value enhancement

Hillcrest believes in building a defensive portfolio, with assets in key economically-sound markets. We focus on mid-sized transactions that are often overlooked by larger investor. Our "on the ground" real estate expertise allows the team to hand pick and accurately price the best opportunities in the market; accordingly, we underwrite investments with a real estate lens, versus financial engineering.
