OUR PROCESS

DEAL SCORING

Cadence prides itself on stress testing every assumption and running complex models for every capital raise.

Recognizing early a need for a data-driven system to evaluate opportunities across geographies and asset classes, Cadence set out to create a proprietary scoring system. Wanting a best-in-class system, we partnered with 6 University of Michigan MBA students pursuant to the Ross School of Business Multidisciplinary Action Project course.  

 

Based on consultations with our capital relationships, we identified 23 factors integral to a real estate project’s success. By evaluating and weighing these factors, we handicap a project’s likelihood of success and identify potential weak spots to be discussed at the forefront of a raise. While not a substitute for a potential investor’s own underwriting and diligence, we believe our capital resources appreciate a process and filter before a deal reaches their inbox.

CADENCE AUDIBLE

We showcase each opportunity through Cadence’s “Audible Investment Summary,” a concise offering memorandum including only a deal’s essentials. Developed and tested over time, it is our thesis (and investor feedback has confirmed) a short, dense OM is more respectful of investor time and therefore will more often move to the top of the pile.
