DFI is passionate about the real estate industry and our work is a source of pride and enjoyment.
We operate with an entrepreneurial mind-set and institutional capabilities to provide our clients with access to differentiated value-add and opportunistic real estate investments that generate superior risk-adjusted returns with a focus on capital preservation and capturing asymmetric returns. We do this by following a disciplined and creative investment approach; employing and working with exceptional talent; and driving value creation through active asset management.
Our culture and decision-making is anchored by our core values with a mission to cultivate excellence and trust in DFI’s people, partnerships and performance.
We are self-disciplined and obsessive in our desire to excel and create exceptional value for our clients. We foster a learning environment to ensure we continually improve.
We adhere to the highest personal, professional and ethical standards to do what is right for our stakeholders. We believe radical honesty and consistency build and retain trust, foster collaboration and drive self-improvement.
We act as entrepreneurs, thinking as owners and taking responsibility for the future success and growth of the business. We are flexible, creative and decisive in our approach to problem solving and identifying new opportunities.
Teamwork is at the core of what we do and we take a partnership approach with our stakeholders. Our collaborative team approach is cultivated through focusing on common goals, operating an ideas meritocracy and holding ourselves accountable. We reward hard work and commitment through an equitable allocation of the firm’s financial successes.
We take time to step into the shoes of our colleagues and stakeholders, to understand their challenges and what they are feeling and thinking. We listen deeply to what is being communicated to enable us to respond effectively.
We create a non-hierarchical and empowering environment that encourages strong convictions, critical thinking and business creativity. We recruit exceptionally talented and highly motivated people and create an environment where they are trusted and supported to achieve their full potential in the service of our clients.
