Real Estate Ownership
W.P. Carey owns and invests in commercial properties primarily in the United States and Europe that are then leased to companies, primarily on a triple-net lease basis, which requires the tenant to pay substantially all of the costs associated with operating and maintaining the property. The Company earns lease revenues from its owned and co-owned real estate investments that it controls. In addition, it generates equity earnings through its investments in the shares of the Managed REITs and certain co-owned real estate investments that it does not control. In addition, through its ownership of special member interests in the operating partnerships of the Managed REITs, it participates in the cash flows of those REITs.
W.P Carey acts as the advisor to the managed programs. The Company provides various services, including but not limited to the day-to-day management of the managed programs and transaction-related services. The Company structures and negotiates investments and debt placement transactions for the managed programs for which the Company earns structuring revenue. W.P Care also manages the portfolios of the managed REITs' real estate investments and the loans made by Carey Credit Income Fund (CCIF), and earns asset-based management revenue.
