investment styles

We offer a broad array of real estate investment strategies that span the risk-return spectrum, ensuring proper fund diversity and mitigating counterparty risk. Our local team is prepared to execute strategies that match market dynamics to investor risk profiles, with a clear focus on development/opportunistic and value-add projects.

We seek to find mispriced opportunities, particularly assets that are under-managed and are not easily recognised by the wider market. Such prospects may arise from changing credit markets and/or our established in-house contacts and sourcing capabilities. These opportunities are focused on value creation in the form of capital improvements, leasing and revenue enrichment strategies as well as the refining of operating efficiencies.

With a highly specialised project management team and extensive industry contacts we are able to manage and invest in projects with a longer time horizon offering higher investment returns. Our team has a solid track-record in both pure ground-up developments and renovation projects involving the acquisition of vacant buildings with significant upside potential.

a manager who invests with you

We seek to generate superior risk adjusted returns by leveraging our operating expertise and focusing on our core real estate capabilities – sourcing, underwriting, leasing, financing and adding value (either through development, value creation or a hands-on property management strategy).

We are committed to systemically allocate our own capital alongside investment partners, being able to implement flexible investment partnership platforms that cater to distinct strategies, risk profiles and capital structures.

Our preferred investment platform is a General Partner/ Limited Partner joint venture structure, typical in the private equity real estate industry. In this scenario, Bondstone stand as the General Partner and the Manager’s remuneration is mainly based on the financial success of the project.
