HQ Capital’s real estate investment approach ranges from conservative core acquisitions to entrepreneurial ground up development for both commercial and residential real estate.
Over the years, we have demonstrated the ability to tailor our investment strategies to the market cycles and supply/demand balance in the U.S. real estate markets.
Funds. For entrepreneurial investors, the primary strategy pursued has been joint venture development of multifamily residential and commercial properties. Typical investments include rental apartments, student and senior housing or commercial (office, retail and industrial) projects in growth-oriented markets. Investors can participate in a targeted investment strategy or become a co-investor with a fund on a specific property. Since inception, HQ Capital has invested US$10.6 billion, consisting of more than 64,000 residential units and 5.3 million square feet of commercial space.
Single-Asset Investments. Another HQ Capital strategy has been to invest in individual real estate acquisitions focusing on Gateway U.S. markets that may have a longer holding period than fund investments.
Separate Accounts. HQ Capital works directly with individual investors and strives to meet specified investment parameters, including return goals and threshold to risk. Historically, these acquisitions have primarily included office buildings or high-end retail properties in top quality locations with longer-term holding periods. Since inception, we have directly acquired more than US$3.5 billion of real estate, consisting of over 16 million square feet of commercial space and 4,600 residential units, through separate account mandates.
Real Estate Asset Management. HQ Capital provides a full range of services for investors seeking investment advisory or third party asset management services. HQ Capital acts as an owner’s representative and develops strategies for each property and the portfolio as a whole based on the respective investors goals and objectives. Since inception, we have managed nearly US$3.0 billion of real estate totalling nearly 12 million square feet of commercial space and 1,200 residential units on behalf of institutional third-party investors.
