Our Values

Boutique setup

An agile boutique is the best setup to capitalize on real estate opportunities. An entrepreneurial framework is crucial for successful origination and value creation. Our extensive experience paired with our broad network of best-in-class partners enables us to solve sophisticated and complex real estate situations.

Sociodemographic focus

The world around us is changing at an astounding pace. Demographic changes, an increase in quality and service expectations, an ageing society, technology and sustainable considerations currently lead to monumental changes in society and how we live or work. We are pioneers in leveraging these changes to generate value for our investment partners.

Active investing

We don’t just allocate; we actively invest our partners’ capital. We focus on investments where a hands-on management approach maximizes returns. Whilst many investors look at real estate to preserve wealth, we focus on growing our partners’ capital via short to mid-term projects, seeking opportunities with an attractive risk-return profile.

Partner-centric

We recognize the responsibility we take in managing our investment partners capital and ensure that all of our team members are held accountable for their actions. Our approach is to continuously leverage best-in-class processes and people to deliver outstanding results. We listen to our investment partners’ expectations and act upon them.

Principal-owned

The firm is wholly owned by its principals, who control all strategic and operational decisions. This results in a distinct and valuable alignment of interest with our investment partners and creates proper incentives to meet or exceed investment objectives. The teams’ compensation is tied to the performance of the investments under their management and to the degree to which they meet investor objectives.

ESG

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations are key to everything we do. We believe that integrating these factors in our investment processes leads to superior investment outcomes over the long-term. Whether it is protecting and growing the capital of our investment partners, creating value for our principals or aligning interests with business partners, we are committed to supporting sustainable practices that generate positive environmental and social impact – not just now, but for years to come.

Sustainability considerations, both environmental and social, are critical for our real estate investments. These drive our capital allocation process whenever possible. We believe that a sustainable strategic focus will reinforce that strong financial returns and long-term positive impact can be mutually reinforcing.
