Opportunity in Alternatives

Some say opportunity knocks, but we believe opportunity is where you find it. The Opportunity Trust is an open-ended mutual fund that benefits from our team’s ability to think strategically and see how, with improvements and innovation, a group of assets can be stabilized and provide upside though improved metrics and optimization of the asset.

Finding Opportunity Others Overlook

The Avenue Living Real Estate Opportunity Trust is an open-ended mutual fund trust that targets under-performing multi-family assets, balanced with stable, well-tenanted commercial assets. The Trust currently owns retail, office, and industrial space across Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The Opportunity Trust targets under-performing residential assets whose value can be increased through capital improvement, active management, and stabilization programs. Suite upgrades, renewed building systems, and implementing leasing programs to stabilize occupancy and improve net operating income (NOI). These properties benefit from the infrastructure already in place in Avenue Living Communities, which allows efficient and active management. The Trust balances this investment through stable commercial assets with a strong and diversified tenant base.

The Trust invests in “workforce housing,” multi-family assets that cater to a community’s essential workforce. This demographic is often over-qualified for affordable housing yet is unable to afford market-rate homes. On average, essential workers make up 40% of a province’s workforce population – they can be seen as the backbone of the Canadian economy. Essential workers are respectful of their dwelling, gainfully employed, and highly likely to pay rent.

Management consistently monitors real estate and capital markets with the goal to achieve the maximum disposition proceeds from each investment.  What does this strategy mean for investors? The potential for higher capital returns than normally exhibited in core and core+ real estate strategies.
