Investment principles & strategy

Timbercreek focuses on identifying and valuing real estate investment opportunities on a risk-adjusted basis. We source investment opportunities across the capital stack and access stable, inflation-hedged cash flow by investing in real estate directly, investing in debt secured by real estate and by investing in companies (publicly and privately) that own investment-grade real estate. We maximise value by employing a value-oriented investment philosophy combined with an active, hands-on asset management platform to identify opportunities that will generate predictable and sustainable long-term cash flow. We have earned a reputation for providing conservatively managed, riskaverse investment opportunities for our investors. The following strategies are offered through focused mandates as well as through integrated and customised solutions to meet individual investment mandates:

Private Equity: These strategies are comprised primarily of direct real estate investments in a portfolio of multi-residential properties across Canada that we own and manage. We also invest in other commercial real estate sectors, primarily in North America, through our global investment platform as well as through partnerships with high- quality owners/operators.

Private Debt: Timbercreek targets inefficiencies in markets where economic and regulatory changes have caused constraints in capital to real estate investors. We have identified these conditions emerging in global real estate markets, spurred by ongoing debt crises. Timbercreek’s debt investment strategies are designed to meet the specific duration and risk/return requirements of our investors and are supported by a team of experienced originators/underwriters located in Canada, the US and Ireland.

Global Real Estate Securities: Timbercreek offers global real estate exposure through investments in public equity and debt securities. Our global securities platform allows us to create tailored solutions for investors seeking global real estate exposure and to provide investment strategies that can efficiently capitalise on mispricing in different global markets. We employ the same bottom-up approach we take to real estate investments when investing in public securities, which is to underwrite the assets directly, but primarily access the bricks-and-mortar through publicly listed real estate securities.
