Our integrated model combines direct asset management, specialist research capabilities and operational expertise to deliver superior results. We have in-house specialists who are directly responsible at each stage of a building delivery program and work alongside leading operating partners.
Our proprietary internal research team uses a range of information sources to map out themes around legislative arbitrage, demand / supply mechanics, demographic and structural adjustments and infrastructural improvements. From here we refine our asset selection criteria and build competitive advantage.
We invest thematically using our deep market insights to provide a framework for our acquisition strategy.
We have focused on developing this research function to support the development of its investment themes and to provide deeper insight into the markets in which it operates, allowing it to apply critical and quantitative analysis to identify, test and refine investment hypotheses. Castleforge can then invest along scalable themes that have been refined and verified. Once an investment hypothesis is proposed,the hypothesis is challenged and refined using a number of tools and sources, including: real estate data provided by estate agencies and public bodies, demographic and spending data, infrastructural and transport analysis, statistical analysis, and internally developed innovative machine learning programs. Ultimately, our Strategy Committee approves a verified investment theme and, once approved, we can target investments supported by the investment theme, resulting in clear and thoughtful communication and investment decisions.
Operating platforms developed in-house capture unmet demand and allow out performance at the asset level.
Castleforge seeks to enhance the tenant experience through offering a quality service and fostering a strong sense of community.
