About LEAGUE Financial Partners
Since syndicating their first commercial property purchase in 2005, LEAGUE's co-founders Adam Gant and Emanuel Arruda, have grown LEAGUE Financial Partners to manage more than $1.8 billion worth of assets in Canada.

From the very beginning, the co-founders' goal was to provide individual investors, who traditionally do not have access to institutional opportunities, to pool their capital with other like-minded investors to invest in commercial real estate projects.

LEAGUE accomplishes this goal through two companies: LEAGUE Financial Partners (LEAGUE) and LEAGUE Investment Services Inc. (LISI).

LEAGUE Financial Partners has rapidly evolved into one of Canada's fastest growing companies, ranking No. 103 in the 2013 listing of the fastest growing companies in Canada by PROFIT Magazine. Assets developed and/or under management include: the LEAGUE IGW REIT, a private $300-million Real Estate Investment Trust, comprised of a portfolio of Canadian commercial, industrial and residential properties; the public $500-million Partners REIT (TSX: PAR.UN), an open-end real estate investment trust focused on acquiring and managing a portfolio of retail and mixed-use retail community and neighbourhood centres; and individual Real Estate Limited Partnerships ranging from office and industrial buildings, big box retail power centres to mixed-use developments.

LEAGUE Financial Partners finds, acquires, improves and operates investment properties on behalf of LEAGUE Investment Services Inc.'s more than 3,500 Member Partner investors.

LEAGUE Investment Services Inc. (carrying on business in Nova Scotia as LISI Investments) commenced operations in September 2010 when it became an Exempt Market Dealer, registered in all Canadian jurisdictions across Canada. LISI's mandate is to provide its 3,500 Member Partner investors access to institutional style investments.
