A robust network of industry relationships leads to “off-market” deals and preferred positioning with intermediaries.

Investment Approach

Focusing exclusively on the United States, MFIRE target the top 25 to 30 metropolitan markets, looking for markets that exhibit:

  • favourable demographic trends (population, migration and immigration growth)
  • low unemployment rates and high job growth markets in comparison to national and regional averages
  • high barriers to entry for new supply, home ownership affordability (a large differential in the cost to own versus the cost to rent)
  • extensive infrastructure in terms of freeways, ports and air service that leads to superior access for residents, and
  • quality of life and destination areas.

Within each asset type (industrial, multifamily, office and retail), MFIRE have developed a unique set of investment criteria to identify compelling investment opportunities.

Target Markets

Focusing exclusively on the United States, Mesirow target the top 25 to 30 metropolitan markets.
