Always Evolving.

Like our founder, we continually reinvent ourselves. Over the past 30 years we have invested in energy, healthcare, logistics, manufacturing, transportation, media, real estate, and other industries. We often pioneer new opportunities as we did with distressed fund investing, and we specialize in complex areas others avoid such as NOLs. We raise outside capital when there is abundant opportunity, and we are patient, picking our spots, when there is not.

We may have competitors in any one thing we do, but there is no one who does everything we do. Without arbitrary barriers we can look at virtually any opportunity. Whatever we pursue, we are grounded in Sam Zell’s fundamental investment principles.
