Winthrop Realty Trust is a Boston and New York-based real estate investment trust publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “FUR”. Our principal business activities have been acquiring and originating loans secured by real estate, joint venture investments with local real estate partners and investing in equity and debt securities where the underlying assets consist of real estate.
Our management team is composed of individuals whose careers have been devoted to a value oriented opportunistic real estate investment strategy. Management has sought to earn high risk adjusted returns by targeting for acquisition assets which we believed to be undervalued and/or exhibit the potential for superior growth.
On August 5, 2014 a special meeting of common shareholders was
held and the Plan of Liquidation previously adopted by the Board of Trustees was
approved. Consequently we are no longer making new investments.
Currently, we own a diverse group of properties, loans, securities and other real estate related assets. For more information, please see the Our Assets section.
