Investment syndication

Local market expertise. Independent thinking.

Entrepreneurial approach leading to results.

We focus on value investing in retail, industrial, and office opportunities. We partner with private investors, family businesses, occupiers, and private equity funds. Our decisions are made with careful analysis and on-the-ground research, and are typically contrary to the mainstream investment preference of the moment. With an in-depth understanding of specific sub-markets and property types, combined with our experience managing and owning assets ourselves, we execute on investments that lead to results—no matter the market state.

CEG is a hands-on operator that focuses on active leasing, property management, and construction management. We identify and reposition fundamentally sound properties that need capital to cure deferred maintenance and implement improvements including cosmetic enhancements, more targeted leasing, and a revamp of operating expenses.
