Our investment approach

We identify themes and opportunities and capitalize on them while staying true to our investment philosophy.

1

Basis

We maintain an unwavering focus on underlying fundamental value when evaluating market opportunities. This reduces risk, protects capital, and increases returns.

2

Proactive

We have a bias for action and apply an active hands-on asset management approach to what we do. This means being decisive, acting with urgency, delivering excellence, and innovating every time.

Perspective

We go where others are not. We are thematic investors and focus on key economic drivers and underlying fundamentals to select the opportunities we pursue.

Our Business

Slate’s Investment Platform

  • Real Estate Equity

Opportunistic & Value Add
Core Plus & Income

We invest in opportunistic and value-add real estate across all asset classes in North America and Europe.

Private

Our core-plus and income strategies target the acquisition of cash-yielding, stabilized essential real estate assets in North America and Europe that are critical to the supply chain, such as grocery, healthcare assets, and affiliated warehouses and logistics centers.

 

Public

We manage two publicly-listed investment vehicles: 

Slate Grocery REIT

Our in-house development team has a history of global development deals and works across all asset classes. Our capabilities span the entire spectrum of residential and commercial development, including ground-up and repositioning opportunities.
