At ABR, we think that wisdom lies in knowing what to do next, and virtue is in doing it. We ask a lot of questions. We look at every angle. Seeing the big picture and knowing when to sit tight and when to take action is key to our success. We adhere to a consensus approach to strategic decisions that is based on a disciplined due diligence process that measures risk against the likelihood for optimized returns on each investment. We anticipate growth opportunities in times of change and disruption and provide the resources and strategies necessary to capitalize on those opportunities.
Ahead of the Curve
Fifty-Years of Entrepreneurial Action
ABR Excels at Turning Change into Opportunity
Since our founding in 1972, we have built a reputation as a trusted, highly focused and value driven middle market real estate investor. Our entrepreneurial culture emboldened by hard work and a vision for what’s next is a testament to our roots which began in the country’s oldest investment bank, Alex. Brown & Sons.
ABR leadership capitalizes on emerging trends through innovation and discipline. While most of our colleagues have more than 20 years of tenure with the firm, we are constantly adding new talent with a fresh perspective to our management platform.
At ABR, we believe that the transformative impact of investing is the key to a better future — an improved built environment, a smarter economy, a healthier planet, diverse and inclusive communities, and a broader path to prosperity.
