Our co-founders believe in three things when it comes to their investment philosophy: diversification, reliability, and capital preservation. That is how they approach every investment they engage in. When evaluating assets, Sridhar Marupudi and Zia Rahman look at location, current occupancy, the surrounding neighborhood, and choosing properties with solid anchor tenants and engaging businesses that attract repeated foot traffic. Focusing on commercial retail, medical practice buildings, and multi-family residential, Sridhar and Zia know they have a winner when they see opportunities to increase opportunities while making strategic systems and cosmetic improvements to their investors’ holdings. They increase ongoing cashflow while also increasing the property’s equity. As they have demonstrated multiple times over the dozen years they have been in the real estate investment business and the two years since they formed OCTAVE, Sridhar and Zia have created a reliable and stable dividend stream paid monthly to their investors. Based on their constant study of the market they make decisions to refinance, augment, or liquidate the holding when they feel that they can maximize equity and returns to their investors.
