We are an income and growth-focused commercial real estate investment firm centered on providing stable, yield-producing investments to our clients. We follow a reliable blueprint: an active, personalized approach to portfolio and asset management coupled with a conservative investment philosophy. We invest with best-in-class operators who have decades of experience in their asset class through multiple recessions. Wellings Capital provides two funds to allow investors to tailor their investment to different objectives or to diversify their holdings with us.
After a thorough analysis of historical risks and returns of different asset classes, Wellings Capital was formed with a focus on stabilized Class B apartments in growing markets. With a combined total of several decades of entrepreneurial and investment experience, the Wellings team had experience in both making and losing money. The founders were unwilling to subject investors to the latter, and therefore took a determinedly conservative stance as they pursued multifamily acquisitions.
The overheated apartment market continued for the last number of years, and Wellings Capital decided to expand its vision outside of multifamily investing in early 2018. At this late point in the cycle, we determined that it was the time to be investing with experts.
Who Are These Experts?
- Best-in-class operators with decades of experience in recession-resistant asset classes and who know precisely what to do at this late point in the cycle.
- Operators often unknown to the general investing public since they have typically self-funded or raised capital from a close group of family and friends.
- Syndicators who share our risk-averse approach and who have a proven acquisition strategy and a seasoned asset management team.
After speaking with hundreds of investors Wellings decided to provide two investment vehicles.
