Our Investment Strategy

DRA has employed a consistent, value-added investment strategy for over 38 years. Our investment philosophy is a conservative one, but we make sure to stay adaptive to changing market conditions. We target investments that offer competitive income returns and the potential for capital appreciation. Preservation of capital, downside protection and stability of cash flows are key elements of the firm's investment approach.

How We Seize Opportunity

DRA's funds are designed to capitalize on inefficiencies in real estate markets. In doing so, we can acquire high-quality operating assets at discounts to replacement cost.

Unlocking Value

After an acquisition, DRA's dual expertise in both real estate operations and capital market dynamics helps drive the execution of the investment strategy. Our team will also employ value-enhancement strategies to improve an investment's potential for capital appreciation.
