In this recent episode, I sat down with Jacob Vanderslice. I discussed his journey in the real estate state world and how they expand the self-storage business that is downside-protected, recession-resistant, and durable recurring revenue streams. He also mentioned the three ways to invest in the self-storage asset class.

The diverse background of VanWest’s principle allows the company to look at investments outside the traditional, single-focus strategy of many companies. Uncovering value when it is not obvious allows Jacob and his team to maximize investment performance to their stakeholders.

Jacob is passionate about educating investors about self-storage, urban infill repositioning, redevelopment of distressed commercial assets, and other non-traditional investment opportunities. He focuses on investments driven by data and reveals and maximizes opportunities to make a positive and lasting impact in the lives of his clients and investors.
