Real Estate

The objective of the Guardian Capital Real Estate Fund is to preserve capital while providing investors with an annual gross cash distribution of approximately 6% - 8% and total returns (income and capital) of approximately 8% to 10% through a diversified portfolio of direct Canadian real estate investments. This core plus portfolio will be comprised of small and mid-sized commercial (industrial, retail, office) and multi-residential properties in primary and select Canadian markets.

Our dedicated and experienced team of real estate professionals is responsible for all aspects of investment management that include deal sourcing, analyzing and selecting properties and evaluating appropriate exit strategies.

The niche acquisition strategy of the Guardian Capital Real Estate Fund is guided by several key investment principles:

  • Acquisitions price that is at or below replacement cost
  • Proactive focus on off-market acquisitions
  • Properties with functional features that provide flexibility for re-leasing and re-sale opportunities
  • Asset with inefficiencies in property ownership, property management and leasing
  • Properties with rental income at or below market rates

The investment team’s active asset management and professional leasing capabilities brings each acquired asset to an institutional standard of management and maintenance.
