The path of sound credence is through the thick forest of scepticism

George Jean Nathan

Credence Capital is a boutique real estate investment business established by the former CEO and CFO of Rockcastle Global Real Estate Company.

Currently, grocer anchored convenience centres weighted towards tenants drawing non-discretionary consumer spend offer superior risk adjusted returns compared to other property asset classes in both the UK and Poland.

The principals of Credence Capital have a track record of creating substantial shareholder value in the most competitive investment markets in Central and Eastern Europe. In excess of EUR2 billion of acquisitions, EUR500 million of refinancing and EUR130 million of annual net operating income was achieved in their former property business. In 2017, the team executed a merger with New Europe Property Investments to form Nepi Rockcastle plc, now the largest retail landlord in CEE across 10 countries and with over EUR6bn in assets.

Strategy

Credence Capital targets real estate themes based on a rigorous assessment of value creation opportunities that can be executed within the framework of our expertise and market access.

The Company's Creed:

Aggregating

Aggregating a portfolio of individually targeted assets;

Creating

Creating a market leading operational platform;

Relentless

Relentless pursuit of value creation.

The Company is actively involved in thought leadership with respect to our investment themes.

We assess and pursue interesting opportunities with crossover synergies across the value chain of this asset sub-class. These not only provide stand-alone investment opportunities, but are IP generative and further enhance our core value creation methodology.

The Company is an early investor in a US software based deep learning platform that utilizes a customer’s existing CCTV camera infrastructure to turn simple video feeds into actionable insights across industries including retail, shopping malls, commercial properties, warehouses and transportation hubs.

The IP access in this and similar investments, helps constantly refine and improve our investment thesis and understanding of real estate trends and contributes to value creation opportunities.
