Property Fund - Private Equity Real Estate Investor There is no denying that property funds –listed and unlisted—and private equity real estate funds are going through one of the most difficult times in their lifetime. Adverse fundamentals, hostile fund raising environment, leverage drought, capital chasing ‘secondaries’...The only solution: renew your focus on operations. Extract value. Rationalise. Put all your assets to work. If again you are ‘blessed’ with cash, the next few years are likely to prove some of the best vintages in living history.
Whatever your situation, we can help you improve your performance and achieve your targets
You are a cash-rich entity that decides to take advantage of the various opportunities available in property markets today. Remember - acquiring an asset, portfolio or operational entity at a ’distressed’ price is one of the most effective ways of generating value. This however is not a straight forward process. You need to know the exact origin of this distress. There will be obvious reasons as well as others, not so obvious ones that lie in the depth of the asset or the operation. And although the buyers are dictating their own tempo, there will be times when a really good opportunity will come with its own compressed timeframe.
We can assist you in making the right decisions with confidence by:
Devising a detailed business plan to identify the risk and return profile of the potential transaction, with particular emphasis on potential value-add initiatives
Orchestrating legal, technical, property and market due diligence, with the appropriate focus on the relevant risk factors
Providing crucial input in the negotiation of the relevant documentation to mitigate risks
Where the best strategy the disposition of all or part of your portfolio, 8GCP is uniquely placed to extract the maximum value. This we achieve by knowing the audience that will value the target the most as well as the way to structure the sale to maximise value.
