Berkeley Partners and its affiliated entities comprise a fully integrated principal investment firm focused exclusively on multi-tenant light industrial real estate. Since 2005, our affiliates have sponsored a series of investment vehicles dedicated to the light industrial sector. With its national footprint, the company is one of the premier institutional industrial operators and fund managers.
Berkeley Partners focuses on the multi-tenant industrial market because the market is large comprising 3~4 billion square feet with highly fragmented ownership. The market is underserved by institutional players despite demonstrating historically higher average occupancy and rental rates compared to the broader industrial market.
We cultivate a strong operator culture through our affiliated on-site property management teams that work to maintain high occupancy levels. Property managers are taught to be fiduciaries for Investors.
The Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Criteria is a set of standards for a company's operations that socially conscious investors use to screen investments. We integrate ESG into our investment analysis and decision making.
Through creative and custom utilization of innovative enterprise technologies, Berkeley Partners creates efficiencies in operations and communications that provide competitive advantages.
