Home > AR Capital > Why AR Capital?
The AR Capital investment process combines the traditional benefits of investing in real estate with additional factors that can make it an even more appealing investment choice. These factors include:
Our portfolio of investments is diversified across a number of dimensions, including geography, tenancy, lease duration, financing terms, and credit types.
While our portfolio may include some properties with either short or medium-term leases, our leases will generally have terms of 10 or more years. The greater lease term supports longer, sustainable cash flows.
We prefer to lease properties to investment grade and other creditworthy tenants. By confirming the financial strength of our tenants, we create a more secure investment opportunity for our investors.
While many firms focus their property portfolios in a particular industry or geographical area, our portfolio of assets extends across multiple industry sectors and geographies. We are therefore more resistant to economic downturns in any one sector or location.
Real estate investments can provide an additional degree of diversification to an already diversified portfolio. Those who limit their investments to stocks, bonds, and cash may be missing out on an important opportunity for additional asset diversification. Historically, changes in real estate values have not been directly correlated with fluctuations in asset classes such as stocks, bonds or currency markets.
