Strategic Investment

Our Investment Philosophy

Stage 1 - Value Add Growth Investment

Through our active management, properties (typically commercial and industrial) are upgraded and positively repositioned in accordance with pre-determined 'exit strategies'.

Future scenarios, including the effects of emerging changes to transport infrastructure and town planning, are closely evaluated and monitored. This assessment may lead to the lodgement of rezoning and/or development applications with planning authorities.

Timing, linked with market knowledge and the ability to perform without delay, is a key factor of success. As property trends and economic conditions change, Stirling endeavours to promptly adapt, always with a view to enhancing its clients' prospects of strong investment returns.

Predetermined 'value add' and exit strategies are defined for all investment offerings. Fees are substantially linked to investment performance.

Value Add Stage
Development Stage

Stage 2 - Development (Optional)

"Stage 2" only applies to funds holding properties with outstanding development potential, subject always to investor approval.

When and where applicable, investors will have the opportunity to vote for an extension (typically 3 years) of the term of the relevant fund, beyond Stage 1, to both enable and participate in the property's redevelopment.

Stage 2 would only proceed if fully funded and with approval of both the fund's investors and Stirling's Board of Directors. Net proceeds are distributed to investors upon project completion.
