Real Estate

Direct real estate investments

We have extensive experience in all major real estate classes: retail, commercial, industrial and residential.


Retail
In spite of the public perception that e-commerce will put brick and mortar retail out of business, the retail sector has been delivering stable and substantial returns for many years. In fact, retail real estate is the asset class that historically has had the highest price per square meter, by far, of any type of commercial real estate. In the US, for example, retail real estate has produced average annual returns of 10.8% over the past 20 years, according to the NCREIF Index.


Commercial
Because the value of a commercial property has intrinsic correlation to its net operating income, it enables you to make (or lose) money in a deal regardless of what is happening on the greater market. This means that commercial real estate is a business model where the operator can increase property’s value by increasing the income of the business. This also means that commercial real estate is more than simply making a bet on a market and hoping for the best.


Industrial
In recent years, the industrial market has become one of the best sectors to invest in. The sector’s strength is especially associated with the growth of e-commerce and also the need to get goods shipped to consumers faster, which requires warehouses near city centers. In general, industrial real estate is also less expensive to own and operate than other types of real estate, which enables investors to acquire and maintain larger properties with lower ongoing costs.

Residential
One of the most common ways people invest in real estate is to purchase and operate one or more single family properties as rentals. Since most investors have purchased their own home, this approach is logical as it is an investment they fully understand. Furthermore, owning a second home can be attractive as the purchaser has likely seen the value of their home increase over time. However, investors seeking a more diversified portfolio should consider other types of real estate.
