We began our institutional real estate fund business in 1993 and since that time have launched and managed nine different real estate joint ventures. Investment strategies target the top 20 MSA’s in the United States and are focused on the apartment, industrial and mixed-use asset classes.
We believe that the co-investment joint venture structure offers the investor a superior alternative to the traditional fee-for-service adviser paradigm. Co-investment provides a true alignment of financial interest and the critical advantage of access to GID’s unique fully-integrated set of business platforms. GID’s business platforms cover all aspects of property ownership and operation, including acquisitions, dispositions, development, finance, asset and property management, leasing, construction management, accounting, legal, tax, MIS, and insurance risk management. With a significant equity interest in each joint venture, we have a strong vested interest in the returns generated by each real estate fund and co-investment joint venture program. As a consequence, acquisition, development, operating, and disposition decisions are judged solely on maximizing returns.
