Colony NorthStar, Inc. (visit website)
Colony NorthStar, Inc. (Colony NorthStar) is a leading global real estate and investment management firm with approximately $57 billion* in assets under management. Colony NorthStar strategically manages real estate and other investment platforms in the United States and internationally and was one of the first institutional managers to offer non-traded retail products to individual investors. Colony NorthStar provides retail clients with access to a diverse range of institutional-quality alternative investment programs designed to meet a variety of investor objectives.
Colony NorthStar’s successful track record is closely linked to the organization’s highly disciplined investment approach and institutional background. The emphasis on in-house loan origination gives management greater control over the terms of each contract and relationship with its borrowers, potentially resulting in a higher degree of predictability over how each investment is likely to perform. Colony NorthStar’s focus on credit underwriting instead of yield potentially provides greater likelihood of repayment of loans at maturity.
