Real Estate Private Equity Funds

Granite establishes closed end investment clubs (“Funds”) for high net worth investors and institutions seeking to diversify their portfolios, share risk and gain access to opportunistic commercial real estate and ancillary investments.

Granite develops macro-themed value-add and opportunistic property strategies targeting entity- and asset -level investments and strategic joint ventures with specialized, private real estate companies that have attractive long-term prospects for outperformance across various property subclasses. Granite targets long-term investments (5-7 years) that offer attractive risk-adjusted total returns.

Granite Capital utilizes the broader Granite platform for researching, sourcing, underwriting, structuring, executing and managing investments.

We favour value-enhancement and opportunistic strategies and investments where we are able to…

  • Exploit market imbalances (demand/supply)
  • Identify capital pricing mismatches (price given risk)
  • Define a clear exit strategy (liquidity)
  • Mitigate risk of capital loss (risk)

… to drive out-sized risk-adjusted total returns.
