Investment Philosophy

Stockbridge is a private equity real estate investment management firm led by veteran industry professionals. Our approach to investment management focuses first and foremost on the client, and integrates the experience and resources of the firm’s entire team to maximize investment results.


Client Focus

Stockbridge understands the importance of aligning manager-client interests. We realize success through the delivery of quality results to our clients. Our senior professionals design customized real estate investment strategies for our separate account clients that complement their existing portfolios and we maintain focus and discipline when carrying out investment plans. We view regular client contact as essential to our work and maintain an ongoing dialogue with our clients, allowing us to reassess investment strategies in light of both changing market conditions and evolving client objectives.


Seasoned Management Team

Stockbridge brings together a senior Management Team with an average of 25 years of real estate industry experience whose members have collectively invested over $50 billion in more than 500 real estate and capital markets transactions. The senior Stockbridge professionals have invested in every property type, across every point on the risk/reward spectrum and in every stage of the real estate investment cycle. Additionally, our senior professionals possess specialized development expertise and are experienced in large-scale, complex transactions. We believe that the application of our historical perspective on markets, product types and pricing is an invaluable advantage for navigating through a rapidly changing real estate market environment.


Collaborative Process

Stockbridge believes strongly in the collaboration of senior resources across all real estate disciplines throughout the investment management process. A team orientation maximizes the exposure of our clients to a diverse range of top real estate talent, and fosters an environment that encourages financial and managerial ingenuity. Several of Stockbridge’s senior professionals have worked together for more than 15 years, and provide a complement of skills in acquisitions, dispositions, portfolio management & asset management, capital markets and development.


Hands-On Approach

We believe that successful real estate investing requires first-hand knowledge of the real estate itself, a principle often forgotten in more “transaction based” environments. Stockbridge will not commit to any property acquisition until our senior professionals visit the subject property, interact with brokers in the market and assess the physical condition of the building. Stockbridge maintains a “hands on” asset management philosophy. Our investment professionals are involved in all major leasing and capital investment decisions and interact regularly with local property managers and other service providers.


Maximum Investment Results

Successful real estate investment management relies on both the “nuts and bolts” principles of investment as well as the intuition that can only be gained through a long history of experience in the industry. Stockbridge combines a “hands on” investment strategy with an experienced team to maximize results for our clients.
