Our investors represent our most important relationships. We relentlessly strive to do what’s best for them. We listen to their needs, put their interests first, and keep them well-informed—a policy which results in rewarding, long-term relationships.
By listening to both our investors and operating partners, we’ve developed innovative investment strategies focused on taking advantage of market and property type trends across market cycles. We take great pride in having created the first institutional real estate fund focused on sponsor equity, as well as the first student housing fund. We look forward to creating more industry "firsts".
Our team culture is collaborative and research-driven, with a goal of consistently improving our investment processes, managing risk and satisfying our investors and partners. We are focused on delivering attractive risk-adjusted results across strategies, regardless of where we are in a market cycle.
We strive to establish trust with our investors by nurturing long-term relationships, consistently exceeding expectations, and providing accurate and timely communications.
We are a boutique-style firm structured to be nimble, responsive and able to extract maximum value from the investment opportunities we identify. Our proactive approach allows us to navigate market cycles and trends, and ultimately execute on well-informed decisions on behalf of our investors.
