- LCN Capital Partners’ co-founder, Ed LaPuma, was featured in the PERE News May cover story.
- LaPuma provided concrete definitions of the net lease market to help define the space: “Primary investments in the net lease space include sale-leasebacks – the act of buying a company’s underlying real estate and leasing it back to them in a triple net lease agreement; and build-to-suit developments, where the manager does not undertake the leasing risk. Secondary investments entail the acquisition of an already leased building, which accounts for the majority of activity of new entrants”.
- LCN Capital Partners’ sole strategy focuses on the originating sale-leaseback and build-to-suit investments in the primary market.
