QuadReal Invests US$1 Billion with Ranger Global as Foundation for New Strategic Partnership
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QuadReal Property Group (“QuadReal”) announces it has acquired a 46% ownership interest in Ranger Global Real Estate Advisors, LLC (“Ranger Global”), a leading investment advisory firm focused exclusively on the management of global listed real estate portfolios. This milestone advances a significant relationship between the two companies that began with the outperformance QuadReal has realized from investing $1 billion of assets with the experienced Ranger Global team, beginning in early 2020. As of September 30th, 2021, Ranger Global’s Global Real Estate composite ranked in the 1st percentile of the eVestment Global REIT peer universe for the trailing 10-year period.
With an investment process founded on deep fundamental research and developed over the multiple market cycles of the last 30 years, Ranger Global is differentiated from its peers through opportunistic investment across the spectrum of higher-growth, high-quality real estate companies.
Dennis Lopez, QuadReal CEO, said, “Ranger Global and QuadReal partnered to invest in the opportunities that were presented by the market volatility created by the pandemic. The Ranger Global team is nimble and astute in the investments they make on behalf of QuadReal. We value the success we achieved and sought to deepen our relationship by taking an equity position in the company.”
Richard Saltzman, Senior Advisor to and Ranger Global Board Chair, adds: “I’ve known and admired the current senior leadership of Ranger Global and QuadReal for many years and am delighted to see this collaboration take place. All parties share a mutual commitment to unlock value by combining the best of public and private real estate market expertise. In fact, it is very gratifying to already witness the synergistic results being generated by this partnership.”
“Public real estate equities are an important component of QuadReal’s global portfolio. Working with the Ranger Global team enables us to invest thoughtfully in listed companies in global markets across all property sectors and business cycles,” says Jonathan Dubois-Phillips, QuadReal President of International Real Estate.
“Ranger Global will continue to be majority-owned by our employees and Senior Advisor/Chair. The power of employee equity ownership is that we have attracted and retained an exceptionally seasoned and talented team of investment professionals,” says Scott Tuck, Ranger Global co-founder and CEO. Adds Andrew Duffy, Ranger Global co-founder and CIO, CFA: "Over my 30 years of investing in listed real estate, I have learned to appreciate the research synergies and opportunities afforded by adopting a holistic investment perspective across both public and private markets. Our close working relationship with QuadReal over the last 18 months, now formalized through this strategic partnership, has further broadened and deepened our capabilities, which we believe will benefit all of our clients.”
