Private Client Group

Equiton's Private Client Group provides high-net-worth individuals, families, business owners, and select clients and partners with access to additional services and unique private investment opportunities.

Private Investment Opportunities

Equiton's Approach

The cornerstone to successful real estate investing is to have the right framework and a rigorous process to find and take advantage of opportunities through thorough due diligence, planning, and execution.

*Qualified individuals and partners may have access to private real estate investment opportunities including:

  • Joint Ventures
  • Co-investment opportunities
  • Value-add and repositioning projects
  • Development projects
  • Bespoke investments


Our tailored client portfolios are unlike traditional "off the shelf" solutions that come in either one size fits all or small, medium, and large.

**Equiton's investment portfolios are based on our clients' unique circumstances. They are actively managed and adjusted based on our clients' changing risk-return appetite, age, liquidity concerns, income requirements, and financial conditions, as well as, the overall investment market conditions.

Individually tailored clients portfolios are:

  • Focused on public market and private equity investments
  • Geared to investors who want a mix of safety, income, capital appreciation, and low volatility
  • Underpinned by a rigorous and disciplined investment process
  • Based on each clients' comprehensive risk-driven Investment Policy Statement
  • Designed to deliver returns for each client's unique investment/risk profile

Equiton's clients receive regular updates and have direct access to an investment professional. Therefore, Equiton can respond to any changes in individual requirements, as well as, changes in market conditions, in a timely and effective manner.
