GLC was established with a focused strategy of minimizing risk and generating capital appreciation for investors across several real estate classes and investment types. Our collective years of expertise and diverse knowledge of the market, coupled with leveraging longstanding relationships allows us to generate positive returns and enjoy a high level of satisfied, repeat investors and partners.

We are strategically aligned with our investor as our compensation is generated through absolute investment performance with our investments. With a partnership approach as opposed to a fee centric model, we assure the interests of the sponsor and our partners remain completely aligned. 

GLC looks to capitalize on dislocations in markets by investing throughout the capital structure at a significant discount to underlying value. Our market presence and awareness position us to value add across the real estate spectrum, ranging from a complete physical restructure and implementing a new unrealized strategy to essential financial engineering enabling a property to economically perform again. By using a proprietary valuation methodology we purchase existing assets at a significant discount and then either harvest or portfolio the asset on a timeline that maximizes return.

As a Mezzanine Capital provider we are able to move quickly and position ourselves in the capital structure where our value will be most rewarded.  Since each deal is unique, we can creatively structure each situation to suit our partner and ensure the optimum capital structure for the success of a project.
