It all comes down to execution
"On all of our deals we have had people say 'can't' to us. They say 'Can't be done, can't do that, can't raise money, etcetera.' At Slate, we don't do 'can't' well."
Blair Welch, Partner & Co-Founder
Having multiple capital sources means that we are able to pursue many types of deals, pairing the right opportunities with the right investors in the process. Slate has worked extensively with pension funds and private equity in addition to having raised debt capital via our wide relationships with North American banks and private lenders.
Slate continues to build on its proven track record of executing on complex transactions and creating meaningful value in commercial real estate.
