Unparalleled Experience

During our 25-year history, Black Creek has sponsored 18 full scale investment platforms, including 13 institutional and five retail funds. We have hands-on real estate experience across multiple property types – office, retail, industrial and multi-family – and our senior investment team members have expertise across all facets of the real estate business.

Real Estate Operators with Developers’ Insights

From offices in nine key North American markets, we stay close to our investments and develop strong relationships with local real estate partners. This broad physical presence informs our market intelligence and allows us to recognize opportunity that capital allocators tend to miss.

A Disciplined, Repeatable Process

First and foremost, we are stewards of our investors’ capital. With that great responsibility in mind, we apply a rigorous research and due diligence framework to every investment we consider and execute.

A Nimble Boutique with an Institutional Infrastructure

We believe that empowering our teams to quickly make informed decisions separates Black Creek from the competition. At the same time, our extensive, institutional-caliber underwriting and investment processes work to complement our entrepreneurial culture.

Property Type Expertise

We own properties in dozens of key markets which we access from our nine offices in the U.S. and Mexico. Our strategically located offices put us close to our investments, facilitates developing strong relationships with local real estate partners and informs our market intelligence.

Each property type is run as an autonomous business unit and managed by a real estate industry veteran. By combining acquisition and disposition functions along with asset management, our vertically integrated approach ties underwriting, financing, property management and strategic decisions together, which we believe leads to better results.

Our Story

More than 25 years ago, three real estate professionals joined forces to create a different type of real estate investment firm – one that would leverage their passion for developing and investing in real estate with the rigorous due diligence found at Wall Street firms.

They began building a firm that combined the benefits of an institutional infrastructure typical of a larger firm with a unique spirit of entrepreneurship and creativity that put them in the center of every aspect of each real estate transaction.

During the last three decades, hundreds of extraordinarily talented professionals have joined the firm, each of whom share a common belief that being close to real estate transactions is the best way to deliver strong returns to investors.

Today, Black Creek’s success is evident in the portfolio of impressive properties we’ve built from the ground up, the strong relationships we’ve forged with real estate professionals and investors around the world, and the returns we’ve delivered to our investors.

There are firms that invest billions in real estate portfolios whose executives may never see a single building in which they invest. That’s not who we are.

Our investment professionals are on the ground in the key markets in which we invest. We’re examining buildings we own and working every aspect of every real estate transaction in order to maximize every dollar that we invest.  We believe it’s the right way to invest in real estate.

At Black Creek, we’re deeply invested in real estate.
