Avenue Living Forms Strategic Institutional Relationship With Westcourt Capital Corporation
Initial capital allocation of $50 Million
Avenue Living Asset Management is pleased to formally announce a new institutional relationship with Westcourt Capital Corporation, a Toronto-based, independent portfolio manager and investment advisory firm. Westcourt specializes in selecting suitable investment products, and assisting clients in constructing conservative, alternative investment portfolios.
The relationship has commenced with Westcourt’s initial allocation of more than $50 Million in client capital to the Avenue Living Real Estate Core Trust during April 2018.
“We are pleased to have developed an institutional relationship with Avenue Living that will benefit our client portfolios for the foreseeable future,” said Robert Janson, CIO of Westcourt Capital Corporation. “We believe we’ve found an excellent management team and an outstanding asset base that will allow for outsized risk-adjusted returns. We look forward to capitalizing on the inefficiencies that the Avenue Living management team has identified in the Western-Canadian apartment market.”
“Westcourt Capital is the premier investment advisory firm for Canadian high-net-worth and institutional clients, and we are proud to partner with Westcourt as the Core Trust’s anchor investor,” said Anthony Giuffre, CEO of Avenue Living Asset Management. “The significant investment traction we have gained together in just one month is a testament to investor appetites for alternative real estate investments, and the confidence in Avenue Living’s business strategy in Western Canada. We are very pleased with the momentum, and anticipate this to be the start of a long term relationship, delivering strong performance and yields for a growing investor base.”
Established in 2006, Avenue Living is one of the largest private real estate owner/operators in Western Canada. Avenue Living Asset Management has $980 Million of assets under management, including multi-residential, commercial, and agricultural land real estate.
