About Slate

We are a global investment and asset manager, with a bold vision to re-imagine the potential of properties, markets or opportunities that others overlook, resulting in long-term value for our investors and partners. Slate was founded with a relentless desire to do things differently. We hustle every day to realize the potential of the most complex deals, while making it simpler and easier for our investors with a direct and approachable manner unique to the industry. As entrepreneurs, our investors are confident knowing that their capital is in good hands as we treat each investment as our own, because they are. This means we have an unrivaled interest in challenging the status quo to find new ways to discover, create and capitalize on opportunities that others can’t. It means we must deliver in an agile and responsive way that our portfolio demands while never losing sight of the people we serve and the returns we have a duty to generate.

Brady Welch and Blair Welch, Co-Founders

“Our people are our most important asset; an investment in our people positions our firm for future growth and success.” 

Value investors

Our focus is on real estate fundamentals and we look to buy properties well below replacement cost. This reduces risk, protects capital, increases flexibility and enhances returns.

Thematic

Identifying segments of the market with high-quality real estate that is fundamentally mispriced because other investors overlook its value. We shift our themes to take action, anticipate capital flows and profit from changes in macro-economic and real estate trends.

Proactive, hands-on management

Experienced real estate operators with a hands-on approach to asset management. We use our expertise to generate long-term value through opportunistic repositioning, redevelopment, in-fill development and distressed portfolio opportunities.

Relationships

Establishing relationships based on transparency, respect and trust across all facets of the commercial real estate industry in North America and Europe. Our approachability, reputation for execution and status as a preferred partner give us the ability to close an outsized number of attractive deals both on and off market.

Environmental initiatives

We believe the responsibility of a fiduciary is not limited to generating investment returns, we know we must be good stewards of the planet, as well. Our planet is home to all our stakeholders, and we believe it is our duty to embrace and invest in sustainable design and management. 

Social programs

Slate's social responsibility starts with our teams who are committed to giving back to the communities we work and live in. Our people are our most important asset; an investment in our people positions our firm for future growth and success. 

Governance

Our governance drives everything we do - we strive to act as an example in the industry that acts responsibly and with integrity in all aspects of our business. We hold ourselves to a high standard we would expect from a fiduciary in our position because we are more than investors - we are invested.
