West End Capital Group (“West End”) is a privately held real estate investment firm headquartered in Washington, D.C., led by Managing Partners James Barter and Jeff Wainwright. West End’s primary focus is delivering superior risk-adjusted returns to our investors by applying a long-term, value-oriented philosophy to real estate investing.
Our disciplined approach is built around capital preservation first and foremost, but also emphasizes achieving stable, attractive current returns today, and outsized capital appreciation over the long-term. We pride ourselves on being independent thinkers that oftentimes prefer contrarian investments, and perhaps most importantly, our decision making, actions, and communication are always guided by honesty, integrity, and transparency.
West End focuses on identifying opportunities with asymmetric risk profiles that offer an above-average return for a given amount of risk. In order to deliver such returns, West End relies upon several distinct competitive advantages: deal sourcing ability, an institutional approach, local market knowledge, creative incentive structures, flexible deal structures, and reliable execution.
