Vice President, Private Equity
Overview of Forum:
Founded in 1996, Forum is a purpose-driven alternative asset manager, investor and developer across North America, with a focus on real estate and private equity. Forum works with its partners to achieve aggressive growth through innovation and consistent performance as a top-tier alternative asset investor. Forum oversees approximately C$1.6 billion enterprise value in assets under management and has engaged in C$3 billion of commercial activity since inception.
We pursue value-added and opportunistic investments, often with an element of recurring or contracted revenue that facilitate 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.
Forum is an entrepreneurial team working together towards a common goal of achieving Extraordinary OutcomesTM. 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 emphasizes collaboration, open communication, continuous learning, humility and integrity. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive team that reflects the values of our firm – impact, integrity, diversity, innovation and high performance.
Forum launched its private equity strategy in 2018 and has completed 6 investments to date. The private equity group is currently investing its first investment fund, Forum Urban Infrastructure Fund I (the “Fund”). The Fund strategy is to invest in and manage a portfolio of growth equity and project finance investments in building services and urban infrastructure businesses and platforms where value can be created through scale, diversification, structuring and implementation of best practices.
We are looking for a smart, driven and results oriented individual to join Forum’s growing private equity investment group in the role of Vice President.
The Vice President will work closely with senior team members to help lead deal teams in originating, executing and managing investments and will play an important role in the success of Forum’s private equity strategy.
