At Watermark we invest and manage with a commitment to both our investors and our community. We believe responsible tenants deserve to live in safe, clean, green, and affordable homes. To realize this, we revitalize communities through investment to create quality workforce housing. We raise assets and actively manage funds for the acquisition, improvement and management of strong income generating real estate in the South East and the Midwest.
At Watermark we continue to demonstrate that by acquiring, improving and intelligently managing real estate assets, our funds can generate outsized returns for investors. We enhance profitability and ensure long term sustainability by acquiring and improving poorly positioned or deeply discounted assets that provide an opportunity for enhancement. Watermark targets properties that generate strong annual income for investors from the date of acquisition, using its Leadership Team's expertise to improve the income and value of all properties within the funds.
Prior to acquisition, each property is thoroughly analyzed from a variety of perspectives to determine if it meets our strict Investment Strategy, which includes assessing for improvement or renovation opportunities as well as reviewing for opportunities that enable us to actualize our commitment to enhancing communities.
The Leadership Team uses conservative amounts of bank financing to provide outsized total returns paid to investors in both a quarterly preferred payment and an annual bonus payment. The Leadership Team values transparency and commit to keep investors fully informed of financial practices and policies through frequent communication and Quarterly reports.
