Wicker Park Capital Management believes that growing markets in the Southern United States provide an investment landscape that is positioned to generate higher investment returns. WPCM targets properties that it believes will benefit from operational and capital enhancements. WPCM brings institutional asset and property management processes to its properties.
WPCM targets investments in emerging secondary and tertiary markets in the Southeast that have growing economies and are not widely covered by institutional investors. The lack of institutional investors, who are tasked with placing capital with lower return requirements, creates opportunities for WPCM to acquire assets at attractive valuations, at or below replacement cost, that offer higher current cash returns relative to larger markets and potential for capital appreciation.
