East End is a thematic investor. Ideas are typically generated through the team’s personal experiences and insights. Once a market thesis gathers traction, deep data mining and objective analysis govern. Themes are analyzed through the lens of technological advances and macro trends, capital flows, growth projections, employment and population data, and supply and demand fundamentals. The process yields East End’s field of opportunity.
East End has extensive and well-established sourcing ability. The firm both proactively and selectively canvasses within its identified markets, and obtains leads from long-standing industry contacts and strategic partners. East End’s direct asset and property management activities are often responsible for highlighting opportunities. Marketed transactions, but more frequently off-market ones, populate East End’s pipeline.
The East End team has decades of prior experience in law, finance and architecture, as well as investment, asset, cost, construction, and property management. The wide array of in-house skill sets allows East End to transact quickly and with confidence. By integrating the investment and operating teams, real-time and accurate leasing, sales and construction cost data is efficiently reflected in all underwriting. Complexity is frequently an ally.
