Burlington, Ontario-based Equiton Capital Inc. and Equiton Partners Inc. are two emerging entities in the Canadian real estate-based private capital market. Our collective goal is to provide exemplary service through open, honest and transparent communication. We aim to promote trust and respect among our employees, investment providers, partners and investors.
Equiton Capital is an independent, full-service exempt market dealer specializing in private capital markets. We focus on providing high-quality private capital market and alternative investments to our clients. Our mission is to create a better financial future for our clients. As we pursue that mission, we are guided by our culture of integrity, our client focus and our hands-on approach.
Our future success lies in the skill and capability of our people. “Our number one priority is delivering an exceptional client experience,” said Managing Director Marvin Daley. “Paramount in doing so is attracting and retaining top talent and creating an atmosphere that stimulates initiative, independent thinking and integrity.”
What is unique about what we are doing?
We are taking a different approach to recruiting and building a strong distribution team at Equiton Capital. We have built a flexible platform which allows established investment advisors and financial planners, experienced exempt market sales professionals, as well as seasoned sales professionals, who are new to the investment industry, to all thrive in our business. By having a diverse team of professionals who can learn from one another, we accelerate our collective ability to form strong, long-lasting relationships with our clients. Clients who are well-informed and well-educated make sound investment choices and become loyal clients.
We have also attracted an executive team who come with unique and diverse experience levels. Each member of the team has significant financial services experience and world-class pedigree having worked for various top global organizations. “As we build our reputation and capability in the market, it’s important that we draw upon leadership experiences and disciplines from across the investment industry,” states Daley.
“We are expanding our team in the months and years to come and will quickly be a significant national presence in the private capital market.”
Our related issuer is Equiton Partners, a dynamic and experienced real estate company whose founders have decades of experience in multiple real estate investment disciplines. Combined, they’ve developed over 100 million square feet of real estate and acquired and managed over $1 billion in real estate assets.
Equiton Partners is a fully-independent private equity real estate company with an exclusive focus on investment real estate. It focuses on a range of real estate investments and real estate property types – from established income-producing real estate through to value-added real estate development. The various strategies of the firm are tailored to the specific requirements of our partners’ needs and to maximizing returns.
With an average of 20 years’ professional industry experience each, our senior team is able to effectively manage assets and development projects. We are unique in the industry because our experience is more than the high-level executive understanding of real estate that one expects. We have years of hands-on field and operational experience, such as personally buying and renovating income properties and working on construction sites. Because we’ve personally managed successful real estate businesses and have been directly responsible for elements like property management, municipal development approvals, design, sales and marketing, site construction and customer service, we have the uncommon capability to oversee all aspects of our projects.
Equiton Partners is also in an enviable position because of the product pipeline we have established. We have spent years designing and building a proprietary database that includes thousands of properties and specific tools to manage our pipeline. Our acquisitions team uses these tools to build long-term, personal relationships with brokers, property owners and industry professionals. Our agility and speed with responsiveness, underwriting and decision-making has built trust and credibility with top brokers who dominate our areas of specialty.
This unique approach is working for us. These types of proprietary systems and personal industry relationships allow us to acquire off-market deals that position us to achieve maximum investor returns.
“The experience of the team gives us a deep understanding of real estate investing and development. We’re able to see beyond the numbers and below the surface to those nuances that ultimately determine success,” said Chief Executive Officer Jason Roque. “Our deal pipeline consistently provides excellent opportunities that are just not readily available to others.”
“We plan to build on our track record of success by rapidly growing our business throughout North America.”
We are excited to have expanded so quickly into the industry since launching in 2014 and are looking forward to the stimulating growth that is ahead of us. We invite you to learn more about us by visiting our website at www.equitonpartners.com and www.equitoncapital.com.
