Griffin Capital Company, LLC (“Griffin Capital”), a leading private investment firm, today announced Griffin Institutional Access Real Estate Fund (the “Fund”) surpassed $3 billion in assets under management, less than five years since its inception on June 30, 2014.
“We attribute our success to our ability to deliver on the Fund’s stated investment objective of generating returns comprised of both current income and capital appreciation with moderate volatility and low correlation to the broader markets,” said Dr. Randy I. Anderson, President, Griffin Capital Asset Management Company. “Moving forward, we will continue to utilize a research-based approach to actively allocate across public and private real estate securities in an effort to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns for our investors.”
“We could not be more pleased, the combination of the Fund’s investment philosophy, our asset management expertise, and partnerships with world-class institutional sub-advisors has been embraced by our distribution partners who have made the Fund an integral component of their clients’ investment portfolios,” said Kevin A. Shields, Chairman and CEO of Griffin Capital. “We are extremely proud of the value we have created for our investors since inception and very thankful for the continued support we receive from both our distribution partners and our investors.”
I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
