Berkeley Capital Announces Strategic Partnership With Equicor
CLEVELAND, Ohio (November 19, 2020) – Berkeley Capital Ltd., a Cleveland-based real estate private equity firm, today announced a new strategic partnership with Equicor, a visionary commercial real estate developer with a wide range of experience in hotel, medical, office and mixed-use assets.
This partnership brings together two firms that share an opportunistic and innovative approach to real estate. Equicor’s diverse real estate experiences – across multiple asset classes – combined with Berkeley’s customized sourcing of international equity and debt capital, creates exciting opportunities for collaboration.
"Equicor and Berkeley share similar perspectives on the U.S. real estate market and the challenges and opportunities ahead,” said Berkeley Capital Managing Director Michael Wager. “We stand ready to work with Equicor to identify and acquire distressed and under-valued assets that come to market as the U.S. economy further adapts to the effects of the COVID-19 crisis."
“Strong relationships are essential for success in this industry, which is why we are so excited about this partnership with Equicor, whose principals share in Berkeley’s core values,” said Adnan Zai, strategic partnerships advisor with Berkeley Capital.
Equicor currently has a portfolio of development and acquisitions valued at over $750 million. Collectively, the Equicor team has over $4.5 billion in development and construction experience.
“Berkeley’s access to international capital and their cross-border experience are what makes them stand out among other capital sources,” said Greg Small, Managing Director of Equicor. “We’re excited about this partnership and the growth opportunities that it brings for both firms.”
