Named for the Scandinavian god of nature and abundance, Akras Capital is a business that creates investment opportunities in the real estate market that have superior returns and stability compared to the US stock market. We do this by focusing our efforts on Inland Growth Cities in the United States and building deep networks that provide access to off-market apartment building deals. We buy, stabilize and rent these to great tenants, providing predictable cash-flow and sale exits, which we pass on to our investors.
Our mission is to intelligently invest and manage properties with integrity, for the betterment of our partners and communities.
What Makes Us Unique?

First and foremost, we’re a team of people you can easily talk to and trust. Our aim is not to “blind you with brilliance or baffle you with nonsense”. We work hard, close real deals and generate solid returns for partners who are aligned with our ethos.
We’re Whiz-Kid Smart
Founded by CFA Charterholders who made their career analyzing and trading in the investment management industry and serial entrepreneurs who have founded and grown businesses across industry, our team (and our investments) are stacked.
We Care About Our Communities
