Why Greystone

Greystone has successfully managed direct Canadian real estate for our clients since our founding in 1988. Clients benefit from the stability of our team, the consistency of our philosophy and process, our use of multiple risk strategies to build a truly diversified portfolio, and the real estate team’s access to the insights of all of our investment teams. We hold our real estate strategy to the same robust standards of compliance and governance as our other investment strategies.

Our real estate strategy is available to pension funds through the Greystone Real Estate Fund Inc., and to other institutional investors through the Greystone Real Estate LP Fund.


Protect. Grow. Build.

Over the long term, the income generated by real estate contributes 80% of the total return from the asset class. Consequently, Greystone’s philosophy is to protect, grow and build the income stream of the real estate strategy. We follow an income/income growth approach involving active management and multi-dimensional risk management.


The real estate strategy is driven by our disciplined portfolio modelling process, which governs our diversification by region, property type and risk strategy. The strategy invests from coast to coast, and in office, retail, industrial and multi-unit residential properties. In addition to the strategy’s focus on core income producing properties, we invest in property improvement and development activities to incubate future income growth.
