Real Estate and Debt Investments

The main team members have been consistently involved in the real estate and asset securitization business since the early stages of the market in the 1990’s, and the team members (as both individuals and members of the team) have accumulated expertise and experience in related fields. Based upon our technical know-how and extensive networks, our team will determine optimal investment strategies for any given investment transaction, from origination and evaluation to asset management and exit strategies.

Real Estate Investments

We will not simply hold profit-earning (leased) assets, but instead will aim to maximize the cash flow and increase liquidity by reviewing both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ aspects of the property and creating ‘value-add’ type investment opportunities.
We will pursue origination of transactions focusing on the potential value of properties, regardless of their characteristics or location.

Corporate Revitalization Investments

We provide revitalization support and investment to companies which require financial and management support. We are capable of handling both debt and equity transactions, ranging from providing know-how and creating various structures to procure risk capital, acquisition of loans from other creditors, rescheduling of loans to provide financial support, and acquisition of equity stake with a view to potentially becoming a sponsor.
We will provide hands-on support thorough the process of revitalization, using various methods appropriate for financial restructuring, such as debt-equity swaps (DES) and debt-debt swaps (DDS), TOBs, and deploying human resources including appointment of directors. We aim to maximize the corporate value of the target company by working with appropriate external professionals to identify and solve various issues in a flexible manner.
