INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
Strada seeks to invest in U.S. markets that are positioned to grow faster than the rest of the country. Though a recovery in the national US real estate market has been underway since 2011, the pace of recovery has varied between markets. The strongest improvement has occurred in markets where the underlying economy is leveraged to industries that are growing at rates faster than national GDP – particularly the technology and energy sectors. These top-performing markets tend to have a highly educated workforce, world-class educational institutions with strong research departments, diverse access to investment capital and strong ties to global markets.

Strada believes that these types of knowledge-based economies generally, and the San Francisco Bay Area in particular, will continue to outperform other regional economies in the short and long term for the following reasons:

  • Knowledge-based economies employ highly qualified workers who are not easily outsourced and are thus themselves valuable assets. These workers often prefer to live in vibrant urban centers such as the San Francisco Bay Area.
  • Regions anchored by knowledge-based economies benefit from outsized jobs multipliers. For example, research shows that for every technology sector job created, four additional non-technology jobs are created in the region.
  • Companies and sectors that were newly emerging in the last cycle are now maturing rapidly and experiencing less volatility in performance.

Strada has deep experience in the San Francisco Bay Area, arguably the strongest knowledge-based economy in the world, and also one of the most supply-constrained property markets. Strada believes the San Francisco Bay Area will maintain strong economic growth across the region, advancing job creation in both technology and non-technology industries through current and future business cycles.
