About Slate

We are a global investment and asset manager, with a bold vision to re-imagine the potential of properties, markets or opportunities that others overlook, with the objective of creating long-term value for our investors and partners. Slate was founded with a relentless desire to do things differently. We hustle every day to realize the potential of deals, while making it simpler and easier for our investors with a direct and approachable manner. As entrepreneurs, our investors are confident knowing that their capital is in good hands as we treat each investment as our own, because they are. We have an embedded interest in challenging the status quo to find new ways to discover, create and capitalize on opportunities that others won't. It means we have a duty to deliver in an agile and responsive way that our portfolio demands while never losing sight of the people we serve and the returns we strive to generate.

“An investment in our people is an investment in the future growth and success of our clients.” 

Value investors

Our focus is on real estate fundamentals and we look to buy properties well below replacement cost. This reduces risk, protects capital, increases flexibility and enhances returns.


Identifying segments of the market with high-quality real estate that is fundamentally mispriced. We shift our themes to take action and endeavour to anticipate capital flows and profit from changes in macro-economic and real estate trends.

Proactive, hands-on management

Experienced real estate operators with a hands-on approach to asset management. We use our expertise to seek long-term value through opportunistic repositioning, redevelopment, in-fill development and distressed portfolio opportunities.


Establishing relationships based on transparency, respect and trust across all facets of the commercial real estate industry worldwide. We endeavour to be approachable and have a reputation for execution and as a preferred partner, which we believe would give us the ability to close an outsized number of attractive deals both on and off market.

Environmental initiatives

We believe the responsibility of a fiduciary is not limited to generating investment returns, we know we must be good stewards of the planet, as well. Our planet is home to all our stakeholders, and we believe it is our duty to embrace and invest in sustainable design and management. 

Social programs

Slate's social responsibility starts with our teams who are committed to giving back to the communities we work and live in. Our people are our most important asset; an investment in our people helps position our firm for future growth and success. 


Our governance drives everything we do - we strive to act as an example in the industry that acts responsibly and with integrity in all aspects of our business. We hold ourselves to a high standard we would expect from a fiduciary in our position because we are more than investors - we are invested.
