We think differently and are not afraid to innovate.

Our investment approach

We understand the uniqueness of our asset class, which demonstrates equity-like, bond-like and real estate-like characteristics.

We have a deep understanding of these characteristics and of the underlying real estate assets of the stocks that we invest in. This enables us to offer a tailored approach to analysis and research to our clients.

Investment philosophy

Central to what we do are our core beliefs that guide our decision-making process and how we construct and manage our portfolios.


REITs Are Real Estate

REITs are correlated to stocks in the short-term but over the medium to long-term, they perform like real estate.


Mispricings Do Occur

The nature of the listed market leads to divergences between stock prices and intrinsic value but significant discounts to intrinsic value do not happen often.


Focus On Fundamental Analysis

Prioritize on-the-ground research and detailed asset-level analysis. Develop and maintain proprietary financial models specific to Global REITs.


Technology as a Central Tool

PropTech platform developed over nearly two decades. Deep analysis of valuation and historical trends to identify mis-pricings.



While we initially started out with our Concentrated Strategy as our core offering to investors, throughout the years we have added tailored solutions to our roster that aim to meet specific client needs and outcomes.
