Investment Groups
The mission of the MSD Real Estate Group is to build a global real estate portfolio focused on achieving superior returns through equity and debt investments. The Group spans the spectrum of risk-adjusted investments to include properties, portfolios, joint ventures and operating companies. We believe that we distinguish ourselves from the traditional opportunity fund models with our approach to long-term investing, which enables us to form important relationships with real estate operating partners who value the insight, experience and integrity that we bring to each transaction. We seek investments with the following characteristics:
  • Core investments: Properties at unique locations with attractive valuations providing above-average, sustainable yields and favorable long-term prospects.
  • Value-added investments: Properties with upside potential through repositioning, conversion or redevelopment, where we can add value with our industry relationships alongside a strong operating partner.
  • Opportunistic investments: Special situations where capital constraints or the markets at large prevent an operating partner from leveraging the full potential of an asset.

Our team has broad experience in real estate finance, risk management, asset management and strategy consulting, enabling us to quickly identify desirable investments and move rapidly to close. Our offices in New York and Los Angeles ensure that we have national and international coverage and remain easily accessible to our partners in Europe and Asia.

Examples of target acquisitions include luxury hotels, commercial and multi-family properties, land development, mezzanine debt and other structured investments and real estate-backed loan or property portfolios.

While we typically identify opportunities through our proprietary network of relationships, we welcome inquiries for investments over $25 million from operators with a demonstrable track record. Inquiries should be sent to: Real Estate Investment Inquiries.
