WEDGE is a Houston-based, privately held U.S. investment firm with a solid practice and patience significantly distinct from ordinary investment and private equity firms: one that is time-tolerant, not time-driven.
Founded in the 1970s, WEDGE has made controlling private equity investments in a wide range of industries including manufacturing, trucking, food processing, engineering, construction, oilfield services and real estate. Today, through WEDGE Real Estate Holdings, the team is focused on acquiring and managing income-producing real estate which includes office buildings and hotels. WEDGE primarily invests in distressed or value-add U.S. real estate with long-term upside potential. A typical investment size is $25.0 million to $50.0 million, financed with conservative levels of leverage between 50% to 70% loan to value. WEDGE Real Estate Holdings’ current portfolio includes seven hotels and five office properties with urban-core, covered land holdings. WEDGE Equities, based in Houston, is responsible for the management of its self-directed U.S. public equity portfolio. WEDGE International Holdings B.V. in the Netherlands, and WEDGE Real Estate S.A.L. in Lebanon, are foreign affiliates that own and manage substantial non-U.S. investments.
WEDGE and its U.S. affiliates currently employ over 500 people.
