Value-driven investing across the capital structure in private and public markets

Westport specializes exclusively on real estate investing, with the goal of generating consistent and attractive risk-adjusted returns through a wide range of investments and across all market cycles.

WCP Diversified Funds

Westport’s diversified funds have the ability to dynamically shift allocations between value-add, opportunistic and distressed investments in response to market conditions.

WCP’s Value-Add investments generally focus on developing and executing sound business plans in assets that produce stable cash flow, revenue growth, expense control and long-term capital appreciation.

WCP's Value-Add portfolios typically have the following characteristics:

  • Emphasis on current income
  • Distributable annual cash flow  
  • Portfolio of more stabilized assets
  • Return targets and risk profiles commensurate with conservative investment parameters  

WCP’s Opportunistic Investments generally involve significant changes in either capitalization, renovation or repositioning throughout the investment.  

WCP’s Opportunistic Investments generally have the following characteristics:

  • Opportunities for significant capital appreciation, while supplementing returns with current cashflow
  • Assets with inadequate capitalization, prior mismanagement/neglect or poor leasing strategies
  • Existing buildings requiring renovation and/or repositioning
  • Commercial and residential property development or redevelopment

WCP’s Distressed Investments and related opportunities provide multiple potential drivers of return across market cycles. Our strong relationships provide excellent access to off-market transaction flow.

WCP’s Distressed Investments may have elements of the following themes:

  • Acquiring debt or equity interests owned by banks, special servicers or other lenders
  • Rescue financing/bridge lending
  • Real estate-related debt, such as whole mortgages, that can be acquired and converted into direct or indirect real property interests
