W. P. Carey Inc. announced today that its Board of Directors approved its plan to end all nontraded REIT fundraising to concentrate on net lease investing. The Company sees the move as eliminating the costs associated with its retail fundraising while preserving the recurring, stable income streams from its existing nontraded REIT programs until the end of their natural lifecycles.

W. P. Carey currently has four nontraded REIT programs at various stages. Carey Watermark Investors and Carey Watermark Investors 2 are nontraded REITs with hotel portfolios. Only Carey Watermark Investors 2 raised equity in Q1 2017, with $210 million in offering proceeds. Corporate Property Associates 17 – Global and Corporate Property Associates Global – 18 have diversified net-lease portfolios and are closed to new investors. Combined, the four nontraded REIT programs have over $10 billion in assets as of March 31, 2017. This makes W. P. Carey the largest sponsor in terms of assets in the nontraded REIT space.

Mark J. DeCesaris, W. P. Carey’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “The Board and management team continually evaluate the Company’s business strategy to maximize long-term value for our shareholders. We looked closely at the potential structures for new products such as CPA®:19 – Global, including the types of investments that would satisfy their liquidity and leverage needs, and the time and scale required for them to reach profitability. Our conclusion was that our shareholders would be better served by focusing on our core net lease investment expertise.
