PRIVATE EQUITY REAL ESTATE
Founded in 2005, Global Equity Group is a real asset manager focused on listed and private equity real estate and listed infrastructure investments, accessed via U.S.-only and global strategies. Global Equity Group is the parent company of subsidiary companies formed as partnerships with highly motivated investors and entrepreneurs with value-add execution in mind. As an investor and manager, our success is firmly rooted in aligning our firm’s interests with those of our clients, partners and employees, as well as our commitment to alpha-generating research.
Global Equity Groups investment strategy seeks to target middle market, transitional assets that require an infusion of capital and operational expertise to enhance value. Our investment objective is to create core-like real estate by buying the raw materials of broken or mismanaged assets below replacement cost and aggressively executing value-add strategies to create cash flow durability. We believe this strategy of focusing on cost basis for assets facing limited appetite from capital sources and actively executing a business plan to produce an asset that will be in high demand will deliver the best possible risk-adjusted return.
Global Equity Group invests in industrial, office, multifamily, retail, parking and hospitality through joint venture partnership with local operators. Global Equity Group believes in partnering with local, experienced, real estate operators to achieve a competitive advantage in the marketplace. GEG invests across the value-add spectrum, including but not limited to:
- Building renovation, expansion and redevelopment
- Lease-up of vacant space
- Aggressive increase of rental rates in recovering markets
- Repurpose or conversion of use
- Reposition and turnaround
In addition, GEG will pursue the real estate of failing operating companies, debt-for-control of underlying real estate, and other higher alpha generating strategies. GEG will also target owners of real estate such as banks (REO’S), special servicers, insurance companies, private equity companies, corporations, and municipalities as to off load these assets of the owners for a value-add proposition.
