Why Canadian Urban
Canadian Urban is an independent Canadian real estate investment manager. Our team of seasoned, agile and highly motivated professionals share a common purpose – delivering solid returns to our clients.
We are not about simply acquiring and managing properties with an eye on short-term gains. Canadian Urban’s goal is to earn your confidence and become your Trusted Advisor. We will achieve this through a long-term approach to investment that emphasizes the importance of ongoing relationships.
Whether you have identified a specific market, geographical area or sector – or are open to ideas – we will tailor an investment strategy to suit your needs.
Our roster of clients is as diverse as the portfolios we manage. It includes major Canadian pension funds, international investors and high-net worth individuals.
Oversight for Institutional Investors
For over 40 years, Canadian Urban has delivered superior returns against an enhanced core asset management style. We never lose sight of our responsibility to the institutional clients who have seen fit to trust us with the future financial security of their members.
Being one of the last independently owned advisors of our kind in the Canadian market, Canadian Urban takes governance and potential conflict issues extremely seriously. Our finance and investment committees are populated by independent external directors.
Opportunities for International Investors
Canadian Urban provides a conduit into the Canadian and North American market for overseas clients. Our in-depth knowledge of international markets equips our Advisors to identify and explain important subtleties in North American markets. This ensures a fair and accurate basis of comparison for our foreign investors.
Our governance and conflict of interest polices reflect the highest institutional standards, and comply with all federal and provincial laws and regulations. Each member of our executive and management teams is regulated and bound by our industry’s professional code of conduct.
Hands-on Attention for Private Wealth
We view our private investors as valued individuals, and never faceless names in a database. As a Canadian Urban client, you are represented by one of the strongest technical teams in the industry. Regardless of the size of your portfolio, you receive direct access to senior management.
Canadian Urban is acutely aware of the concerns of private investors, who value our independence. We provide complete transparency through strict conflict of interest policies.
