We treat our equity investment partners as we would want to be treated.
Alignment – We provide investors with opportunities to earn exceptional risk-adjusted returns and co-invest our own equity with them. We won’t invest our partners’ capital where we wouldn’t put our own. This keeps our interests directly aligned with those of our investors.
Reporting and Governance – We report to our investors in accordance with their specific requirements and on a consistent and timely basis. We make ourselves available to our investors at their convenience and ensure they have the information they need, when they need it. We acknowledge and embrace our role as fiduciaries to our investors.
We actively invest in exceptional projects and partner only with experienced real estate developers.
Active Development Management – Harlo’s management team has been involved in all aspects of the real estate development process and actively participates in the development management of all Harlo projects. This means we stay on top of the multitude of complex situations that arise and ensures that we are able to directly represent our investors’ interests when crucial decisions are made throughout the course of any development project.
Exceptional Projects – Harlo has a disciplined selection process and will only invest in projects that meet our strict investment underwriting criteria. Our development projects must not only meet financial risk and return requirements but must also be strategically located to provide reasonable access to transit infrastructure and to the public and private amenities that have proven to be crucial to the ultimate success of real estate developments.
Experienced Development Partners – Harlo’s management team has worked with many of the most successful, experienced real estate development companies and consulting firms in the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area.
Harlo Capital’s executive team has established strong relationships and partnerships within the real estate investment community in Canada. Through these connections and its internal research capabilities, Harlo identifies, underwrites and selects only exceptional real estate investment opportunities.
Investment Feasibility Analysis and Due Diligence – Once a prospective site has been identified, Harlo implements and adheres to a rigorous investment qualification methodology. Our projects must meet a series of conservative financial modeling tests and withstand a critical analysis of objective and subjective risk factors to qualify as prospective investment opportunities.
Project Acquisition, Development and Construction – Once the decision is made to proceed with a project, Harlo’s team negotiates and concludes the definitive agreements necessary to acquire a direct beneficial ownership interest in the property and to develop the lands on behalf of Harlo’s investment group. We typically look to share development management fees in exchange for bringing Harlo’s capital, experience and oversight to the development partnership. We also co-brand projects with the Harlo Capital name.
We work closely together with our selected development partner and professional consultants to complete the sales and leasing strategy, site plan approval, financing and construction of the project. Harlo’s experienced team and active management style result in better execution, fewer surprises, and more successful buildings and investments.
Harlo’s executive management team possesses a wealth of real estate expertise gained from more than 50 years of professional real estate experience ranging from land acquisition, development management and project financing to institutional real estate asset management.
