Our core investment themes:
Top 25 U.S. MSA’s: strong diversified economies, growing millennial demographic, lifestyles amenities, and urbanization. Focus on top performing submarkets and the best locations within those submarkets
Basis Oriented Investments
Assets that can be acquired at a discount to relative replacement cost
Assets performing below market due to capital, operational, and/or physical deficiencies
Under capitalized, over-leveraged, fund life expiration, market dislocation, foreclosure, and bankruptcy
Off-market transactions, failed marketing processes, situations where complexity limits buyer pool, pre-bid completion of due diligence
Assets must have in-place positive cash flow at acquisition, and maintain positive and growing cash flow during Arden’s ownership
Strong focus on downside protection and capital preservation through disciplined capital allocation, detailed underwriting, and strong execution
Continuously conduct buy/hold analyses throughout the ownership period to realize maximum risk-adjusted returns in < 5 years
The JBJ Soul Foundation, co-founded and co-chaired by Jon Bon Jovi and Craig A. Spencer, combats issues that force families and individuals into economic despair.
Our goal is to identify and maximize the human potential in those affected by poverty and homelessness by establishing programs that assist in providing food and affordable housing, while also supporting social services and job training programs.
The JBJ Soul Foundation began its work through the local efforts of the Philadelphia Soul Arena Football Team, and its owners Jon Bon Jovi and Craig A. Spencer. The foundation quickly expanded its commitment by developing role models for Philadelphia residents on an individual level, a corporate level, and a community level. This effort includes establishing, promoting, and assisting in enduring solutions that help rebuild pride in one’s self and one’s community.
