Fenway Capital Advisors’ (FCA) disciplined approach focuses on creating value through acquiring and repositioning mismanaged and/or under-invested assets in markets with strong fundamentals and positive growth characteristics across the Western U.S. Collectively, FCA principals have more than 50 years of industry experience, spanning multiple cycles, across all disciplines of the real estate industry, including acquisitions, asset management, development and leasing.
The success of FCA is driven by a four-pronged approach of (i) identifying opportunistic situations, (ii) investing targeted capital, (iii) managing assets aggressively, and (iv) harvesting from a position of strength. By leveraging the Company’s brand and reputation, as well as unique broker and intermediary relationships, FCA benefits from proprietary deal flow that often isn’t available to the broader market.
The primary mission of FCA is to protect investor capital and deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns across all phases of the real estate cycle.
