Overview of Forum
Founded in 1996, Forum is an alternative asset manager and private capital investor, with a focus on real estate and private equity. We work with our partners to achieve aggressive growth through innovation and consistent performance as a top-tier alternative asset investor. Forum oversees approximately C$1.4 billion enterprise value in assets under management.
We pursue value-added and opportunistic investments, often with an element of recurring or contracted revenue that facilitates optimal capital structuring. We see these opportunities in sectors including real estate, building services, alternative energy, infrastructure and specialty finance – and we’re constantly looking for new and interesting market niches in which to invest. We are nimble and have flexibility to invest across the capital structure. “Off-the-run” situations are our specialty.
We are an entrepreneurial team working together towards a common goal of achieving extraordinary outcomes. Our core strengths are our agility, creativity and social responsibility. We encourage our employees to grow by empowering them with challenging work and abundant opportunity. We have a culture that values collaboration, open communication, continuous learning, humility and integrity.
Forum’s real estate business is going through a transformational phase with a new Partner and team in place to take on a growing number of ground up development and adaptive reuse projects across Canada.
