Newcastle Investment Corp.

Investment Strategyprint

Newcastle Investment Corp. (NYSE: NCT) is a real estate investment trust that focuses on investing in, and actively managing, a variety of real estate related and other investments. We currently invest primarily in: (1) Real Estate Debt and (2) Golf related real estate and operations.

Our primary investment areas are summarized below.

Real Estate Debt

We invest in real estate and other related debt throughout over a decade of dynamic market conditions.

We actively manage CDOs and other real estate investments. To enhance our returns, we seek to opportunistically buy back our liabilities at a significant discount, and to execute on other niche opportunities, such as collapsing our CDOs.


In December 2013, Newcastle completed the restructuring of an existing debt investment in National Golf Properties. Through the transaction, Newcastle acquired the equity of National Golf Properties and its affiliate, American Golf Corporation (together the “Golf Business”).

As of December 2014, we are one of the largest operator and owner of golf courses in the U.S. - a portfolio of golf courses across 87 properties across 14 states.
