Target Markets


JEM is focused on identifying assets which generate or will generate healthy in-place cash flow and strong returns through value-add enhancements characterized by cosmetic upgrades, increased property management oversight, accretive financing, capital improvements, and property repositioning/rebranding.

Acquisitions range from $10M-$50M and typically offer economies of scale while still falling below the institutional threshold, thereby limiting competition and providing investors superior risk-adjusted returns. JEM’s objective is to provide its investors with a disciplined underwriting and investment approach, comprehensive management, and institutional quality reporting and transparency.
