True Specialists with One Focus
Leonberg Capital is a contrarian, value-oriented investment boutique specializing in mispriced real estate securities trading at high discounts to NAV and excessive yields. We research global public real estate markets for the greatest risk-to-reward outcomes and construct portfolios for long term market outperformance. Our approach mainly targets undervalued small-cap value REITs which we expect to generate returns far exceeding those of passive indexes and most private market real estate investments.
We are not only a research company but also an active manager of our own portfolio and invest in our highest-conviction investment ideas - aligning interest with our clients.
More than 2,000 clients have trusted us with their public real estate investment research; over 40,000 investors follow us on the financial website SeekingAlpha, and +3,000,000 people have read our published REIT-related reports last year alone.
