  4. 4. Strategy The PPA Group’s strategy is to invest in high return commercial real estate with our large network of private equity partners. We own and asset manage our portfolio of commercial real estate including apartment complexes, office buildings and retail centers. The PPA Group’s ownership of a large portfolio of properties allows our equity partners to benefit from economies of scale, eliminating many of the duplicative processes and costs that apply when an investor purchases properties on their own. This allows our equity partners to enjoy cash flow and tax benefits while the property matures in value, while eliminating the worry and hassle of property and asset management on their own. The PPA Group invests large amounts of time and human capital to source the most attractive opportunities for our investors. Extensive due diligence, including financial statement and property audits, is conducted by our in- house analysts and property managers prior to all asset acquisitions. Our equity partners receive in-depth and transparent reports on the findings of our analysis, so they receive all of the information needed to make educated investment decisions. We acquire low- to medium-risk properties with the right combination of price, location, quality, growth and rental potential. We provide a broad range of ownership structure options to meet the needs of our investors including joint venture partnerships, fractional ownership, direct ownership investments, equity partnerships, 1031 exchanges and private placements.
