Value-add investing isn’t new.

In fact, it’s actually one of the oldest approaches to investing, period. Our depth of experience, and our ability to translate complicated strategies into a common sense approach is what sets us apart from our competitors.

Active Management

Active Management

An active role in the asset management of each transaction is critical to outsized investment performance and growth. Our results prove the active management thesis. We achieve above average cash yields for our investors, while protecting against downside risk. The assets we target frequently suffer from some combination of mismanagement, capital neglect, or have underlying value that can be extracted.

Focus on Yield

Focus on Yield

We strive to deliver returns by purchasing assets below replacement cost, collecting stable recurring cash yields, and implementing programmatic value-add business plans. This is about identifying opportunities where we can improve the value of the asset, removing sole reliance on macroeconomic factors to drive value. This eliminates a dependence on a market’s prospects when evaluating an investment opportunity. Lucern focuses on long-term sustainable cash flow, dismissing the risky, short-sighted approach of investing in the “next hot location or industry".
