Investment Philosophy

Based in Toronto, Terracap Group is controlled by Larry Krauss, a lawyer by profession with over 30 years of real estate experience. Larry started in the real estate business by providing tax efficient real estate investment structures and advice to his clients. In short order, Larry became an active participant in real estate and his clients became investors in real estate deals he sourced and managed.

Terracap Group has been involved in over 60 real estate transactions over the last 30 years across North America. The real estate deals have been diverse, including multi-residential properties, development lands and retail and office income producing properties. Terracap Group has bolstered the value of the investments through active management, tax innovative structures, redevelopment, re-merchandising plans, creative financing as well as securing underperforming assets in key markets and repositioning the properties.

Terracap Group investors represent some of the top tier business leaders and high net worth individuals in both Canada and the US. Through its excellent track record of success, Terracap Group has continued to grow and lever off its strong history and professional staff to secure and manage strategic investments. Today, Terracap Group and its related companies own and manage over 2 million square feet of predominantly nationally tenanted retail centers spanning British Columbia to Quebec.
