About Us

Founded in 2011

A recognized leader in the primary sale-leaseback and build-to-suit markets

LCN Capital Partners is a recognized leader in the primary sale-leaseback and build-to-suit markets, where investments and leases are directly originated with corporate users of mission critical real estate. We deliver a long-term solution for our tenant-clients by providing them with a non-bank capital resource, efficient monetization of on-balance sheet real estate, continued operational control of key assets, enhanced financial metrics, and potential tax benefits. Our investing partners benefit from the long-term and inflation protected distributions that we supply.

Proven track record

Since our founding, we’ve established a proven track record. Currently, we manage six portfolios, containing over $6 billion in real estate assets. Prior to co-founding LCN, Edward V. LaPuma successfully originated, negotiated, and closed over $2.3 billion in sale-leaseback and build-to-suit investments across North America, Europe, and Asia. 

Multi‐disciplined due diligence

We employ a comprehensive and distinct underwriting process by individually evaluating the credit of the lessee, the value of the real estate asset, and the importance of the property to the tenant’s business. These processes occur simultaneously, enabling us to create a detailed and holistic assessment of the investment. Ongoing dedication from our team ensures a smooth transition from origination to the closing.

Speed - certainty - confidentiality

Each investment originated receives the immediate and detailed involvement of our Investment Committee, made up of co-founders Edward V. LaPuma and Bryan York Colwell. The close involvement of our Investment Committee throughout the underwriting process reinforces our ability to close investments with speed, certainty, and confidentiality.

Experienced management

Our success is derived from our unrivaled experience in sale-leaseback, credit underwriting, non-recourse debt placement, and corporate finance. Our team is fully dedicated to delivering exceptional service and unwavering commitment to our tenant-clients and investing partners.

Global reach

Distinct U.S. Dollar and Euro-denominated private equity funds deliver maximum efficiency when investing in assets across North America and Europe. Operating in dual currencies allows us to mitigate currency risk. With dedicated deal and support teams in each region, we seek out the most attractive sale-leaseback and build-to-suit investments around the globe.

Long-term relationships

We value long-term relationships with our tenant-clients and have partnered with them during each stage of the corporate growth cycle. Our team focuses on helping them to achieve greater balance sheet and capital efficiency.
