Institutional Fund Management

Institutional Fund Management

Partner with us to create investment programs that target specialty real estate.

We have been an active investor in co-investment programs and joint ventures with pension funds, financial institutions and developers seeking to convert a portion of their development profit into capital gain. Our financial strength affords us the ability to commit capital to a joint venture program assuring that our financial interest is closely aligned with our partners.

Joint ventures can enhance our returns by generating fee income and improving overall portfolio diversification. We believe it is important having access to private capital so that we may take advantage of growth opportunities regardless of conditions in the public capital markets.
