Philosophy


At AEI, we believe that owning income-producing real estate can add value to anyone's well-diversified portfolio. Reliability of income, stability of value, and control of risk over the long-term are essential for successful real estate ownership. Commercial real estate net leased to creditworthy corporate tenants can provide the benefits that we prefer.

To produce reliable returns, we believe commercial real estate is best owned debt-free under long-term leases. We prefer leases that contain contractual rent escalations. We believe in sound investment management and strive to transfer the risk of property-related expenses (such as taxes, maintenance and insurance) back to tenants.
