Our investment philosophy focuses on making investments that can succeed in varied economic environments and do not depend on an appreciating real estate market.
RMA primarily invests in real estate located in the greater metropolitan areas of New York, Washington D.C., Boston, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. We target these regions based on a history of stability and low volatility across multiple economic cycles with prospects for long-term growth. We invest in a broad spectrum of property types, with an emphasis on multifamily, office, industrial, retail and senior housing properties.
We target sub-performing real estate assets resulting from inexperienced management or a lack of capital and significantly improve value through renovation, leasing, professional management and/or capital investment.
RMA invests with experienced local operating partners to correct and stabilize an asset’s performance, increase revenue and improve value. We manage risk through in-depth analysis, extensive due diligence, capital structure, asset management and portfolio diversification.
Our investment focus is in middle market transactions—properties valued between $10 million and $75 million. We believe that capital for transactions of this size is limited, resulting in less competition and higher quality investment opportunities. At the same time, we find greater operating, marketing and selling inefficiencies in middle market transactions which, in turn, provides the opportunity to create value.
The projected holding period for our investments is three to seven years; the actual holding period of any investment may be shorter or longer due to market conditions.
