Berkland & Company is a global leader in real estate investing with a deep track record of success and the proven ability to deploy significant capital anywhere in the world.
We seek out opportunities created by inefficient capital structures, event-driven distress and asset-level difficulties that can be acquired at a significant discount. Our real estate professionals are experts at creating debt transaction structures that offer downside protection, mitigate risk and align the interests of participating parties. Each opportunity is evaluated based on the underlying value of the asset and the risks associated with correcting the situation to unlock value. We support both the near- and long-term capital needs of the properties in which we invest.
Our Real Estate professionals are seasoned experts in sourcing, analyzing, structuring and monetizing real estate investments in distressed debt, high-yielding senior loans, direct equity and hybrid investments, among others. Their experience spans highly structured and complicated capital structures, sponsorship/management turnaround issues, divestitures and bankruptcies.
