Investment Process

Collaborative Investment Process Focuses on a fundamentally based, bottom-up, relative value process.
  • Our relative value process helps isolate stock selection as a potential key driver of future performance, which we believe is a more way to generate returns rather than making larger sector bets.
  • The bottom-up valuation process has resulted in high conviction price targets, which can be used to exploit temporary market mis-pricings and add value over passive strategies.
  • A largely sector neutral approach gives investors broad real estate exposure, diversification, and potentially a more return profile.
  • The portfolio is ultimately constructed from companies scrutinized on business fundamentals, relative valuations, and catalysts.
