Forum Asset Management (“Forum”), a prominent leader in asset management, is excited to announce a strategic partnership with Zenbase, a proptech innovator, with an emphasis on the “S” (Social) in Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles. This alliance is poised to introduce solutions that prioritize social responsibility, including Canada’s only automated rent reporting solution for building credit and the most popular split rent payments.
In an era where social and community well-being holds paramount importance, Forum, is proud to align its efforts with the “S” in ESG values. The partnership with Zenbase signifies a leap forward in delivering advanced services that foster sustainable, equitable, and community-centric living environments.
Kathleen Beaumont, Director, Impact & ESG for Forum, says “Our partnership with Zenbase is a testament to our dedication to creating socially responsible and sustainable living environments. By focusing on the ‘S’ in ESG, we are not just enhancing our residents’ living experience; we are also contributing positively to the communities we serve.”
Koray Oztekin, Founder & CEO of Zenbase added, “Zenbase is excited to collaborate with Forum in pioneering ESG-inspired solutions that prioritize the social well-being of Canadians including students and newcomers. Together, we aim to redefine property management by creating inclusive, supportive, and socially responsible living spaces.”
The Forum and Zenbase partnership represents a leap forward in championing the “S” in ESG principles within the real estate industry. Residents and property owners can anticipate an elevated living experience characterized by financial empowerment, community-building, and a commitment to social responsibility.
Zenbase, a leader in smart rent payments, is committed to economic inclusion that fosters financial empowerment for renters. Our solutions aid the financial wellness of renters while improving operational efficiency for property managers. Rent is usually due on the first of the month, but that doesn’t align with most people’s bi-monthly pay cycle. Zenbase fixed that misalignment by offering residents the option to split their rent into two monthly payments and provides other financial health tools including Canada’s only automated rent reporting to support building resident’s credit.
