Successful commercial real estate investing depends on thorough analysis, not whimsical prediction. CrossHarbor believes good fortune in investing is the product of good thinking. The firm’s goal is to apply disciplined bottom-up analytical procedures, sophisticated legal and financial structures, and proactive asset management to entrepreneurial transactions that possess a value-oriented investment thesis. CrossHarbor’s singular focus is preserving capital while maximizing returns and minimizing risk.
The firm rejects transactions whereby the sole contributor to yield enhancement is the utilization of leverage. Instead, CrossHarbor targets underperforming properties that may generate improved cash flow from the implementation of a clearly defined and well-executed operating strategy. In addition, the firm seeks out temporarily illiquid situations and related pricing advantages that arise from distressed, complex, and dislocated circumstances. This “value” philosophy fosters the creation of secondary and tertiary exit strategies for investments and moderates the impact of uncontrollable, adverse capital market fluctuations.
