Cindat invests globally and across the capital stack in real estate
and special situation opportunities with attractive
risk-return profiles

  • Global Real Estate

    Cindat's global real estate strategy targets properties that offer intrinsic long-term value. Its team is focused on acquiring high-quality, well-located assets at attractive discounts to value, with identifiable opportunities to increase cash flow and create value through active asset management and strategic property management.


    Cindat primarily targets investments in residential, hospitality and multifamily assets in global gateway cities, but has the flexibility to invest across markets, property types and capital structures.

  • Global Special Situations

    Due to deleveraging and tighter capital controls, many Chinese investors that invested aggressively in the global real estate markets during 2014-2017 are now seeking refinancing, restructuring or divestment options.

    Cindat's strong shareholder background and extensive deal and capital sourcing networks in both the Chinese and international markets allow it to provide effective capital solutions for these partners. Further, Cindat's on-the-ground asset management professionals provide market expertise to enhance the performance of these challenged investments.

  • Global Credit Opportunities

    Cindat targets investments in debt and debt-like instruments that are projected to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns with a high current yield component. Leveraging its industrial expertise, Cindat principally invests in real estate and infrastructure-backed assets in the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
