Uncovering Value in Traditional and Niche Asset Classes

Oz Real Estate invests in both opportunistic real estate private equity and real estate credit in the U.S. and Europe. Founded in 2003, Oz Real Estate has raised approximately $3.8 billion of dedicated real estate capital and completed more than 120 transactions across 20 diverse real estate asset classes.

The integration with Oz Management’s broader platform is a competitive advantage that enhances our ability to generate unique investment opportunities and improves access to proprietary transaction networks that are less trafficked by traditional real estate investors.

Differentiated Approach

Our approach is rooted in flexibility, creativity and a healthy dose of skepticism. Many real estate private equity investors are often highly concentrated in a limited number of cities and product types. Such concentration often limits diversification and overlooks interesting alternative opportunities, likely enhancing risk.

In contrast, we seek to build portfolios that are balanced between traditional and niche asset classes, employing moderate leverage, using creative structures and targeting high cash-on-cash returns. As active investors supported by dedicated, internal asset management professionals, we maintain a strong focus on monetization once we have achieved our business plans.
