Guggenheim Partners Combines its Commercial Real Estate Finance and Structured Real Estate Divisions Under Guggenheim Investments

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guggenheim Partners announced today that it has consolidated its real estate divisions, Guggenheim Commercial Real Estate Finance (GCREF) and Guggenheim Investments Structured Real Estate, under Guggenheim Investments. 

The combined unit, now branded as Guggenheim Real Estate (GRE) resides within Guggenheim Investments, and reports to Anne Walsh, Guggenheim Investments’ Chief Investment Officer – Fixed Income.

GRE is a national commercial real estate lending business that sources, underwrites, closes, and services commercial mortgage loans throughout the United States. GRE originates a broad array of loan types for multiple capital sources, including clients for whom Guggenheim Investments acts as investment advisor, sources, underwrites, and closes commercial mortgage loans, along with other real estate structured debt and equity products.  Loans are sourced through GRE as broker as well as from direct industry relationships. 

“Guggenheim has a very successful track record in the real estate industry, and we look forward to bringing clients even more opportunities to invest in the sector,” said Scott Minerd, Global Chief Investment Officer. “By consolidating onto one integrated platform, we expect to increase the number of opportunities that we bring to clients through improved brand recognition, enhanced industry strategic partnerships, and greater efficiency of execution on transactions.”

Anne Walsh commented that GRE “will offer the real estate industry access to the firm’s thought leadership, led by Global CIO Scott Minerd, and the Guggenheim Investments teams who will source, service, and underwrite investments on behalf of our clients. I look forward to working closely with Jennifer Marler, Head of Real Estate, who will lead the unit and brings significant experience to the team.”

GRE will make both debt and structured equity investments and will comprise three teams:

  • Investments Team: Focused on the sourcing and underwriting of investments
  • Portfolio Team: Focused on asset management, servicing, and portfolio strategy
  • Credit Team: Focused on GRE underwriting, credit policies, and procedures

As part of the consolidation, all current GCREF employees will be transferred to Guggenheim Investments.
