Investment Strategy

The Ruth Group creates value by repositioning commercial assets into innovative, creative, and collaborative work environments whereby tenants want to be a part of the community. We revitalize properties to foster tenant energy, creativity and wellness. We look for opportunities to acquire assets for repositioning and/or ground-up development at attractive pricing given complexity or unrecognized opportunity.

Investment Objective:
Alpha generation with minimal principal risk.

Investment Focus:
Our primary focus is creating value in capital starved assets through re-envisioning, re-positioning, re-branding, and releasing, while maintaining an investment basis below replacement cost.

  • Vacant or under-leased properties
  • Capital-starved properties in improving locations
  • Conversion opportunities
  • Properties with additional land or entitlements
  • Build-to-Suit opportunities
  • Development opportunities

We focus on select west coast submarkets where we have decades of investment and management experience, and have a keen sense for tenant demand drivers, competitive properties, markets rents and costs.

We target growing sub-markets that are in the path of increasing tenant demand and rental growth.

Hold Period:
Intermediate and long-term hold.
