As an international investment firm, we always put individual acquisitions in the global context by looking beyond local conditions to macro-economic and geopolitical factors, capital markets and industry cycles.
Our equity capital structure enables us to take a long-term view during periods of uncertainty and market downturns. We rarely rely on debt finance during acquisition and development stages in order to reduce volatility of investor returns.
Quadrum’s team has a proven track record of distressed investing in real estate as well public and private equity markets since mid-90s across a range of geographies and asset classes. This experience enables us to make educated judgement calls in an uncertain and often distressed environment. This includes land development opportunities, permitting, change of use, speculative development and construction issues.
Development and Asset Management
As an integrated development and asset management firm, we believe in a hands-on approach to real estate. Our in-house development and asset management teams are capable of executing complex projects from initial acquisition through pre-development, construction and subsequent asset management stages. At the same time, we collaborate with industry partners and advisors in order to achieve the most effective combination of in-house and external expertise for each project.
In 2015 Quadrum entered the senior living sector with the acquisition of a 32.5 acre development land site near Ft Myers, FL. Avida, Quadrum’s first retirement community greenfield will comprise 460 senior housing units (Independent Living / Assisted Living / Memory Care) and up to 100,000 sf of commercial and retail space. Quadrum’s affiliates act as development managers for the property.
Quadrum Senior Living platform, headed by industry veteran Colin Marshall, has been established to serve as a management platform for the strategy. We believe that Quadrum’s experience in both residential and hospitality sectors, combined with our development resources and presence on the ground in Florida, positions us well to develop the next generation of senior living communities. These communities will serve the needs of an ever-growing generation of American retirees who seek continuum of care in a highly amenitized, modern environment that supports active lifestyle.
In 2016 Quadrum established its own hotel management platform and brand, Arlo Hotels, with the launch of its two newly developed hotels in New York, NY. Headed by industry veteran Foiz Ahmed, the platform will assist in managing Quadrum’s growing portfolio of hospitality assets in the US, including wholly-owned as well as joint-venture assets.
Our decision to establish a dedicated hospitality platform is part of a corporate strategy focused on building deeper in-house management expertise around key portfolio properties. Given where the hotel investment market is today, we believe that being hands-on managers of our newest crop of hotels puts us in a better position to create value for investors and customers over the entire life cycle of these projects.
