Who We Are
Veritas Investments, Inc. is a technology-enabled real estate investment and management company that specializes in sustainably operating mixed-use multifamily properties in major West Coast markets.
Founded in 2007, Veritas manages mixed-use and multifamily properties on behalf of institutional and individual investors. Our buildings are classic, iconic landmarks in irreplaceable neighborhoods located in some of the most desirable submarkets on the West Coast.
Over the last 15 years, Veritas has become one of the leading multifamily operators in California with our pioneering strategy of leveraging technology to buy, sustainably improve, and enhance apartment communities which have often experienced underinvestment.
Through its privately owned family of companies, Veritas offers investors the advantages of a vertically integrated technology-forward platform unique in the industry. We operate best-in-class operations, leasing, marketing, and renovations programs, all performed in-house and leveraging technology to enhance performance.
This wide-ranging team of in-house professionals enables the company to move quickly to capitalize on emerging investment opportunities and execute efficiently on strategy – with tight controls every step of the way – to deliver superior financial performance to investors and an exceptional living experience to our residents.
Veritas Investments dates back 20 years, born from the initial success of property investments made by Founder and Chief Executive Officer Yat-Pang Au.
Mr. Au is a San Francisco Bay Area native and self-starter who, as a youngster, fixed coin-operated laundry machines to help the family business. He acquired his first investment property in 1996 and then built Veritas from the ground up by following a straightforward strategy: acquire classic properties, make upgrades to improve the resident experience, and work within the community as a good neighbor who values the past, while looking to forge a better future.
Inspired by the innovation of Silicon Valley, Veritas enhanced this strategy by building a customized, proprietary technology stack.
With tools and features specific to the needs of operators of smaller apartment communities, Veritas’s technology platform enables the company to provide exceptional digital amenities and customer service to residents, sustainably preserve and increase housing stock in supply-constrained markets, and deliver competitive returns for investors.
Our Culture and Team
Veritas exists to create exceptional value for our residents, employees, and investors by leveraging talent and technology to transform real estate into desirable places for people to live and work.
The acronym R-IMPACT reminds us of the guiding principle of our daily work: Great teammates create a thriving workplace. Our coworkers embody our core values and make our office more than a place to work: They make it a home.
Through our family of companies, Veritas Investments employs nearly 200 teammates – seasoned real estate investment, management, construction, leasing, technology, and finance professionals with extensive experience acquiring, operating, financing, and selling small site multifamily assets.
This in-house team offers a powerful skillset that includes in-depth knowledge of local property markets, a far-reaching network of industry contacts and lending relationships, and expertise in navigating regulation.
