We strive to generate consistent returns by applying our cycle-tested investment strategy.
In every decision we make, our investors' long-term interests come first. We are value investors and not traders. We create investment platforms where we believe in the opportunity with high conviction. While investments are often won or lost in the acquisition process by a small pricing percentage, the potential value not the price drives investment performance. Our core focus is to determine the potential value of an asset.
We strive to add value to underlying properties through a combination of hands-on real property expertise, a strategic investment approach focused on value and trends across markets and property types, and through disciplined portfolio and asset management.
Our core focus is to determine the potential value of an asset, which cannot be understood by math alone.
We apply a strategy-driven investment approach that revolves around three primary themes:
Invest in markets with highly educated workforces that thrive in today's global economy
Specifically take advantage of the urbanization trend in our major cities and emerging urban and suburban nodes with close proximity to transit and infrastructure
Through investment in these evolving neighborhoods, target mixed-use projects that can offer greater pricing power over time
