It is impractical to believe that any single investment manager can possess the market leading skills for all situations. RE-aim leverages its strong and diverse relationship network and works with a select number of appropriately skilled and resourced strategic partners in order to deliver excellence for its clients.
All real estate sectors are becoming increasingly specialised and nuanced. Appropriately selecting and managing the best specialists to perform specific roles is a key determinant of achieving investment performance. The RE-aim team maintains and builds strong relationships with cross sector specialist asset managers.
The RE-aim team will look to partner with appropriately experienced development managers from within its network for each large scale development undertaken.
The success of operational real estate investment is entirely correlated to the capability and performance of operational teams. Appropriately directing, monitoring and incentivising operational teams is a key component to RE-aim's business plan delivery.
This is particularly necessary within the alternative real estate sectors where the 'hands on' entrepreneurial approach of operators needs to be balanced with the necessity to incorporate institutional risk management controls.
Utilising and appropriately rewarding professional advisors is vital throughout the real estate investment life cycle. Maintaining and leveraging relationships with leading professional advisors is a key part of RE-aim's skill set in delivering value to managed investments.
Local market expertise is an important factor in delivering investment performance. RE-aim will seek to partner with local market specialists wherever necessary.
RE-aim is constantly exploring opportunities which require a combination of real estate expertise and operational excellence. RE-aim is seeking to invest its own capital and expertise alongside operational partners into entrepreneurial ventures. RE-aim is flexible enough to view each situation independently and structure a bespoke and appropriate joint venture solution accordingly.
