We are dedicated to creating value for ourselves and others

Allrise Capital is a multi-strategy investment firm with a direct investment mandate covering real estate, venture capital and special situations opportunities in the US and select emerging markets.

What we do

Our investment process is oriented around fundamental research on asset classes, sectors and companies to identify asymmetric risk/reward opportunities.

Real Estate

Real estate has always been an important component of our strategy. Today we own a focused real estate portfolio that includes income-producing properties as well as real estate development projects on the West Coast of the US.

Our approach in Real Estate

With a deep concentration in commercial real estate in the US, Allrise Capital has enjoyed impressive returns that resulted in a portfolio of assets today that serves as the foundation of our investments.

As part of our investment process, we place high value on markets with expanding and diversified job growth, particularly in the technology and manufacturing industries. We seek assets that produce consistent cash flow with the ability to secure favorable long-term debt using conservative loan-to-value ratios.

Special Situations

The firm’s Special Situations practice invests in undervalued assets globally primarily through corporate credit portfolios and distressed debt.

Our Approach in Special Situations

Our approach seeks to combine protection against loss, which generally comes from buying claims on assets at bargain prices, with the substantial gains achieved by returning companies to financial viability through restructuring.

Deep due diligence is imperative to delivering above-market returns and as part of our investment process, we conduct extensive credit, macroeconomic and legal analysis for our investment opportunities.
