  • Scale and pan-regional scope offers investor portfolio diversification and ability to pursue programmatic JV structures with high quality local operating partners in their markets

  • Most of the firm’s professionals are based in Paladin Realty’s regional offices in Brazil, Mexico and Colombia
  • Senior Management has both direct real estate development and investment experience, leading to flexible investment execution (i.e., joint ventures and direct investments) and the ability to take over and operate a joint venture platform if necessary (Paladin Realty is a “control” investor)
