Wafra’s primary strategy is to create value appreciation in the real estate we own. At Wafra, as important as it is for us to make prudent investments, we must be sure that the properties in our portfolio are operated well and then sold at an opportune time.
Our strategy targets acquisitions with potential for enhanced value, like undervalued assets or those with inherent risks. Through aggressive repositioning of these assets, using sophisticated capital structuring strategies and leveraging our significant banking relationships, Wafra seeks to achieve strong investment returns.
By concentrating on a specific operating strategy, we remain focused on a defined, timely exit strategy. This ensures that alignment with our joint venture partners’ objectives remains in sync from the outset.
Without losing track of value-added risks, Wafra’s acquisition team has the goal of finding investments that seem likely to produce opportunistic returns. Our detailed structure and organized execution process contributes to our objective of achieving above market returns on each investment.
Because of our close relationships with major financial institutions and lenders, we can typically structure financing at competitive market rates and terms.
