EDGE

Grupo Axerta occupies a unique position in global real estate investing, based on the following differentiators:

DEEP HANDS-ON REAL ESTATE PERSPECTIVE

Grupo Axerta has 39 years of experience covering several real estate asset class. The Firm has acquired, developed, invested, co invested in multiple real estate assets since inception, generating strong returns throughout that time.

INVESTMENT SCOPE

A hallmark of Grupo Axerta is the ability to pursue a wide variety of investment opportunities as they emerge—moving from asset class to asset class, shifting geographies from Mexico to international markets and changing positions in the capital stack as the team perceives risk/return dynamics to be evolving.

LONG TERM APPROACH

Grupo Axerta seeks to deliver consistent, robust returns while placing a premium on preserving capital. The team is focused on long term capital gains and relationships with the different market players, and only invest in assets and businesses with asymmetrical return potential. Guided by common sense, discipline and the recognition that intellectual humility is the foundation of successful investing, the Firm adheres to the following core principles:

Invest in market or submarket leaders

Target investments with high barriers to entry and little to no competitive supply planned or under construction.

Buy below replacement cost 
Purchase,  at favorable prices, fundamentally sound assets that have previously lacked capital, attention or effective management. Buying below replacement cost offers a margin of safety, typically ensuring that no new construction/ competition will be completed until values rise to justify new product.

Utilize appropiate debt to generate positive leverage

Seek to use proper leverage—in amount and duration—to reflect the stability of each asset’s cash flow.

Construct diversified portfolios
Actively manage concentrations of fund capital by diversifying exposures across risk profiles, geographic areas, asset classes and positions in the capital structure.

Align interests with partners and investors
Treat Grupo Axerta’s industry partners and capital investors as the Firm’s own. Grupo Axerta and its industry and capital partners have mutual trust and are invested alongside us.
