Our Model

Private REIT

Royal Oak is a private, non-traded, Real Estate Investment Trust that invests in industrial, general office, and medical real estate properties.

Stabilized Properties

Real estate properties acquired are “stabilized” in that they are fully occupied by credit-worthy tenants under long-term lease contracts and have a minimum term of eight years.

Net Leased

Tenants are responsible for the costs of operating and maintaining their facilities, leaving rents “net” to the REIT. Clear and predictable cash flows are more likely when operating costs are paid by the tenant. The net lease concept ensures that cost fluctuations do not impact the cash flow of the Company.

Diversified Portfolio

A portfolio comprised of multiple properties with geographic, credit and industry diversification. Our acquisition targets are often “mission critical” to the tenant’s business operations, increasing the probability of lease extensions and renewals, minimizing risk of tenant relocation.

Independently Governed

Governance is provided by a Board of Directors, including an Independent Directors Committee.

Financial Target

Stable, diversified, net-leased properties permit consistent returns to shareholders.
