#366: Investment Strategies, Specializing, and so much more!- with Michael Episcope

Michael is a principal at Origin Investments, a private real estate investment firm that operates more than 5,000 multi-family units in 14 cities, across 8 states.  

Michael brings 25 years of investment and risk management experience to the company and believes that calculated risk-taking in inefficient markets is the key to building wealth. After a 16-year trading career, Michael retired from trading in late 2005.

In 2007, Michael and his business partner founded Origin Investments. In the 14 years since, Origin has executed more than $2.3 billion in real estate transactions, with an average equity multiple of 2.4x, and has never produced a realized loss for any of their 1,400 investment partners.


“We always say at our company: you only need to get rich once…we are really good risk managers, and our job is to make sure, number one, that we don’t lose money and number 2 is that we position ourselves in a way, make really good choices, put ourselves in good assets, and let the upside take care of itself.”
