We specialize in Canadian commercial real estate which provides long-term value to our investors. Our approach to creating risk-adjusted returns and recurring cash distributions for clients is guided by our Return to Core strategy, which prioritizes small to mid-size properties with strong value enhancement potential. By concentrating on comparatively smaller assets, our investors benefit from a well-balanced portfolio that is highly diversified across all sectors and regions of Canada. We further improve our investment performance with an effective acquisition strategy; Canadian Urban’s extensive industry relationships enable us to complete a large portion of our acquisitions (~40%) on an ‘off-market’ basis.
