*Participation in and acquisition of third-party development properties
① Leverage JLF’s know-how in development projects pursued by third parties = Introduce high-quality properties that meet JLF’s investment standards into the portfolio
② JLF leverages its strong financial standing to provide the developer with an exit after construction is complete = Reduces third party’s development risk

2. Contrarian acquisitions during times of financial crisis

During times when the funding environment is harsh, JLF can leverage its access to debt financing rooted in its strong financial standing to pursue the acquisition of quality core assets for its portfolio.
