real estate investing

We use proprietary data feeds to make better real estate investment decisions by reducing human bias and subjectivity. We use quantitative data to identify mispriced assets, to price investments accurately, and to find arbitrage opportunities. We also use predictive analytics to forecast rental income and to anticipate which properties are more likely to outperform the broader city-wide benchmark.

Our method

City-specific real estate investing

We created Cityfunds to provide exposure to markets with traditionally high barriers of entry.

Big data and human expertise

We utilize “boots on the ground” institutional knowledge with the rigorous quantitative analysis of a programmatic investment model.

Buy and hold

We participate in the income and price appreciation that comes from owning real estate long term in the world’s premier markets.

Technology and data enable smarter investing

Compound is developing one of the most technologically-sophisticated approaches in the residential real estate investment industry, leveraging data in multiple ways to make smarter investment decisions.

We research and select the best available third-party real estate technology providers and enter into exclusive relationships to create tech-enabled funds that give us a unique competitive edge designed to enhance returns to investors.

Filtering Investment Opportunities

At any given time, there are thousands of real estate listings, and many more being quietly marketed through off-market transactions. By using our proprietary algorithm, we can winnow down the large list and focus on those opportunities most likely to outperform.

Forecasting Investment Income

We partner with the latest real estate technologies to help our investment team inform its decision-making processes. By using technology, we can better measure and predict how rentable a specific unit at a specific location is, the length of lease and the concessions, in order to accurately price units and then predict rental yields.

A long-term investment strategy that targets Beta+ returns.

Compound builds portfolios designed to provide returns which are generally correlated to the underlying real estate markets, but with the added benefit of an experienced management team and predictive analytics designed to overweight neighborhoods and assets with better future appreciation potential.

We believe that market performance will ultimately determine the bulk of our returns, which is ideal since each Cityfund invests in real estate in cities which historically have not only held value but also generated strong long-term returns.

At the property level, we leverage the experience of an institutional-quality property-management team and use the best in property technology to maximize rental income.

This approach is what we call Beta+.
