VISION FOR SUCCESS
Our vision is to be the preferred place to work, partner, invest and innovate. We attribute our longstanding and future success to:
Our Investment Management
We conduct ourselves with the highest level of integrity, morals, and ethical standards and seek to continually examine and improve ourselves in order to be the best we can be. We will implement those characteristics in the investment strategies, which will span the risk/return spectrum, from core to opportunistic, and include a diversified portfolio of investments that are structured by property type and region. We create investment options to meet our clients’ long-range objectives, enabling investors to strategically diversify their portfolios at every stage of the economic cycle.
Our Management Approach
The primary mission of the investment manager is to achieve the investment objectives, particularly its target performance. The foundation of our approach is the in-depth research of our Research and Strategy Team. This team uses top-down research to develop portfolio strategy and identify target markets, while using bottom-up research to integrate local market analyses into each investment decision.
Our Cycle-Tested Real Estate Expertise
In the 25+ year evolution of KOVA and its affiliates from a regional developer to a fully integrated real estate firm and discretionary investment and asset manager, KOVA has developed a strong foundation of extensive, seasoned operating experience that includes, but is not limited to, real estate activity from acquisition, development, leasing, repositioning, management and finance to disposition. It is this multi-disciplined expertise developed over numerous economic cycles that has enabled KOVA to consistently generate above-market returns for investors.
