The REIT Team of Chilton Capital Management, a Houston-based investment adviser, is headed by co-portfolio managers Bruce Garrison, CFA, and Matt Werner, CFA. Mr. Garrison has over 40 years of experience analyzing public REITs both on the buy-side and the sell-side. Mr. Werner joined Mr. Garrison on the Chilton REIT Team in 2009. Messrs. Blane Cheatham and Parker Rhea serve as REIT analysts assisting Messrs. Garrison and Werner in REIT recommendations. The REIT Team’s strategy primarily pursues investments in publicly traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) and real estate related entities based primarily in North America. The REIT Team believes public REITs are superior vehicles for investing in real estate due to their liquidity, transparency, and total return characteristics. Investing in public securities enhances the REIT Team’s ability to diversify by geography, sector, strategy, property, and tenant while maintaining portfolio liquidity. REIT property types include apartments, regional malls, shopping centers, lodging, office, industrial, self-storage, data centers/cell towers, and a variety of health care related facilities. The REIT Team focuses on traditional methods of security analysis; primarily research, critical thought and analytical depth, which are integral to their investment process. The REIT Team’s investment approach seeks to combine its real estate industry experience with traditional methods of security selection to make sound investment decisions in real estate companies. The Chilton REIT Team manages Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs) for high net worth individuals and institutions. Additionally, the REIT Team is the sub-advisor for an open-end investment company, the West Loop Realty Fund (tickers: REIIX, REIAX, and REICX).

I am a retired Engineer. Upon retirement last year I had to decide whether to take a monthly company pension (based on 38 yrs of service) or take a lump sum and manage the money myself. I chose the lump sum. I now manage a portfolio consisting of MFs, ETFs and individual stocks; mostly within several IRAs. As might be expected I pay the most attention to the individual stocks component on an on-going basis. I am currently following 40 SA contributors and find their combined analyses extremely helpful in confirming current holdings and highlighting other opportunities.
I am a conservative Dividend Investor, and I like to sell Puts and Calls, to increase returns from safe dividend paying stocks. I also trade volatlity on the short side, taking advantage of the contango that is frequently present in the Vix futures curve.

I am an accounting professional for a Fortune 500 company. I spent eight years of my career in SEC reporting preparing earnings releases, annual reports and preparing financial statements. Prior to that, I worked as a CPA/Auditor for a Big 4 public accounting firm. I enjoy reading financial statements and consider myself a dividend growth investor. I love companies that generate more cash than they consume. My investment philosophy is based on my favorite investment book, “The Single Best Investment” by Lowell Miller.
I'm a financial analyst with over a decade of experience (institutional). I'm a value investor by principle, but invest in an unconstrained method (style, direction, and capital structure agnostic). I publish on Seeking Alpha for intellectual exercise, not for profit: any and all observations are for the benefit of Seeking Alpha's readers.
