While real estate in general continues to be an attractive asset class, it is a fragmented market with local dynamics creating wide variation between sub-markets. Our strategic approach to investing and a nationwide scope in partnership with experienced local operators allows us to hone in on the most attractive opportunities wherever they are.
Rigorous risk assessment, risk mitigation, and strong execution are key to realizing good returns in real estate. We maintain institutional standards of due diligence, and underwrite each deal, leveraging our data sources to independently verify project assumptions and sponsor track record. All our sponsors pass a thorough screening before their projects can be approved. In addition, we strive to structure deals in a way that aligns investor/operator incentives and aims to preserve capital if markets change.
Big data has already transformed the finance, technology, and communications industries and now it is transforming real estate. Dramatic growth in data combined with advances in technology are creating opportunities for unparalleled transparency for investors. We mine best-in-class data and make it easy to understand so you don’t have to sift through dozens of pages of documents to identify the most relevant insights. Our data and technology also enables us to cost effectively scale institutional due diligence processes.
