Optimum Group has managed real estate assets for its own account for many years. In 2015, the Group created the subsidiary Optimum Gestion d'Actifs Immobilier inc. to manage real estate investments for external clients.
Because the investments are made directly in properties and not throught the stock market, the opportunities for clients to invest arise sporadically. Such an opportunity typically involves a specific need for capital and must be financed by a deadline that is known in advance. Optimum Asset Management becomes involved in the investment project and offers its clients the opportunity to take part.
The projects sought are stabilized properties, rather than development projects, because they generate high income and the potential for attractive capital gains when they are sold.
