The Capital Markets Group provides advice, execution, and investment management services to clients engaged in buying, selling, investing in, financing, or building real estate. These services typically are provided to private and institutional owners and investors, as well as to corporate owners and occupiers.
Our objective is to advise clients on how to maximize the value of their real estate. We assist them in extracting that value through the application of sophisticated financial strategies and funding mechanisms. Our efforts include but are not limited to investment sales and purchases, joint ventures, sale-leasebacks, traditional mortgages, private placements, securities underwriting, mezzanine financing, loan syndication, and other financing vehicles.
Our Analytics professionals provide the most sophisticated advice on the current and projected value of real estate and real estate-related investments, evaluation of the performance of investment portfolios, the optimal timing of major actions, including acquisition or disposition, and forecasting the impact of economic and demographic trends in real estate.
Our agents, bankers, and brokers apply the most sophisticated techniques to extracting maximum value for our clients from their real estate activities, whether they are buyers, sellers, borrowers, lenders, investors or occupiers. They have the knowledge and experience to optimize transactions from the client's perspective, including maximizing proceeds, minimizing costs, mitigating taxes, and achieving optimal accounting treatment.
Our investor clients benefit from the unsurpassed insight that results from the full range and geographic breadth of our market activities. The real-time market knowledge that we gain in buying, selling, financing and valuing properties on a global basis is gathered, analyzed, and applied for the benefit of our investor clients. We identify opportunities to achieve superior risk-weighted returns in investment products, ranging from separate accounts to fully discretionary funds.
