Proving value in the platform
The Banner Oak team, through its predecessor firm, Hunt Realty Investments, has prioritized its investment strategy around the creation and growth of a series of fully integrated private real estate operating companies. Banner Oak is skillful in recognizing attractive operating platform investments with best-in-class management teams. Banner Oak consistently strives to be a value-add partner, contributing growth capital, objective strategic advice and capital markets expertise.
As a result of this track record and history, in December 2009, Akard Street Partners was launched as a new investment venture with a prominent U.S. public pension fund to invest in new operating company platforms.
Today, the Akard Street program, managed by Banner Oak, has grown to include four active operating companies with over $2 billion of realized and existing investments (including projected costs of projects under development).
