Our goal is “maximizing value for our clients.”
In recent years, with the development of real estate as financial instruments and the growth of cross-border investments, a wide range of domestic and international players have come to participate in the Japanese real estate market. The investment needs and approaches of these players have become more diversified over time, and the level of services demanded of asset managers is ever-increasing in sophistication and scope.
This new environment has transformed real estate investment to require a great deal of “effort and wisdom,” and quality and quantity of such “effort and wisdom” could have a significant impact on asset value. Accordingly, a real estate related financial product that meets diverse and evolving needs of investors requires investment managers with extensive and deep expertise to deliver competitive, sustainable return.
Global Alliance Realty Co., Ltd. (“GAR”) is a real estate asset management company established by Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance Company, MUFG Bank, Ltd., Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking Corporation, and Kintetsu Group Holdings Co., Ltd. as sponsor companies. Since its incorporation in July 2002, GAR has provided superior investment management solutions that meet the diverse needs of our clients.
With our extensive and deep expertise in investment management, dedicated professionals with in-depth knowledge of each related field, and support from sponsor companies, GAR will fully leverage all of these, and pursue to achieve maximum value for our clients through our core businesses - J-REIT Management, Fund Management and Investment Advisory.
Moreover, with the importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives attracting attention recently, GAR, too, will engage in business from an ESG perspective, not to mention from the standpoint of corporate social responsibility, based on the view that ESG initiatives will contribute to maximizing value for our clients over the medium to long term.
