Praelium Commercial Real Estate is a dynamic business driven by ever-changing tenant requirements, demographic trends, technological innovation, and global capital flows. With this perspective, Praelium has consistently executed an investment strategy built on its core investment principles:

Market Selection

Invest in “talent cluster” markets where high-quality employers and employees choose to locate, creating strong and consistent leasing demand.

Asset Selection

Acquire and develop properties that, by virtue of location, physical quality, amenities, or other distinct features, can be positioned to offer sustainable and differentiated leasing advantages over their competition.

Add Value

Focus on situations with financial or operating issues which, when rectified, will create a stabilized investment with a durable income stream and broad appeal to institutional buyers.

Active Management

Manage all stages to create additional value and mitigate any potential downside in this ever-changing market.

Leverage & Exit Timing

Maintain control over exit timing by using leverage which will enhance investment returns and reduce risks for each property during periods of market constraint.

Understand Risk & Return

Measure investment performance by multiple metrics (IRR, equity multiple, leveraged and unleveraged return on cost) to properly assess risk/reward profile of every investment.
