The Parkside Group invests in real estate assets and operating companies. Our fundamental principle is that asset value growth is driven by improved operating results. Accordingly, we don't rely on financial leverage to drive superior returns; instead we focus on increasing cash flows.
We seek investments that offer a differentiated value proposition, where focused execution of a strategic plan positions the acquired asset to competitive advantage. This supports our belief that enhancing operating results post-acquisition is the engine to increasing shareholder value.
The Parkside Group is led by Barry Schneider, its managing partner. Schneider's focus and hands-on operating philosophy spans 30 years of successful investment and management of world-class assets.
Schneider is a graduate of UCLA, and is a past member of the Young Presidents Organization ("YPO"). Schneider was also a participant at the US-USSR Emerging Leaders Summit in Philadelphia and in Moscow.
His son and partner, Blake, a graduate of UC San Diego, joins Schneider. Blake is a skilled financial analyst, and adds unit operating experience to the Parkside team.
