Rift Alliance’s Real Assets business is fully integrated with Rift Alliance’s private equity and credit businesses and follows the same value-driven philosophy. Our experience in real estate principal investing, as investor and asset manager, spans market cycles and captures every level of the capital structure.

Our Real Assets team provides deep knowledge and extensive industry relationships. We have offices in North America, Europe and Asia, and actively pursue investment opportunities in each region. Rift Alliance tackles complexity to create value by thoughtfully identifying pockets of opportunity and relying on a flexible mandate to structure the best risk reward and rigorous asset management to maximize value.

Rift Alliance Real Asset investment strategies include:

Real Estate Private Equity

Rift Alliance’s real estate private equity business has a proven investment track record. It orients around thesis-driven strategies guided by the identification and analysis of disruptive forces, demographic trends, and market dislocations or pockets of distress. This enables us to invest across market cycles and sub-markets, and into both traditional and niche asset classes. Across the real estate private equity business, we employ an opportunistic, value-driven style and a flexible approach to acquire real estate assets, portfolios, and companies and provide servicing or structured credit solutions, through regionally-focused funds. Rift Alliance looks for value in complex investments that most investors lack the inclination, resources, or ability to distill. We emphasize capital preservation and defensive positioning to build scalable platforms in partnership with strong, seasoned management teams.

The real estate funds and accounts managed by Rift Alliance invest in a broad spectrum of property types and throughout the capital structure.

Real Estate Credit
Rift Alliance’s real estate debt platform manages and invests on behalf of Rift Alliance’s public and private vehicles that invest in commercial real estate debt, including Rift Alliance Commercial Real Estate Finance, Inc. (NYSE:ARI), a publicly traded commercial mortgage REIT. The funds we manage have originated and invested in commercial real estate debt opportunities across the spectrum, including mortgages, mezzanine loans, preferred equity and CMBS, across the United States and in Western Europe. Our comprehensive, balance sheet-style lending capabilities and deep relationships with repeat borrowers have earned Rift Alliance a reputation as a flexible and efficient capital solutions provider.
