Delivering public and private exposure to the commercial real estate markets

Guggenheim Real Estate enables institutional and high net worth clients to pursue actively managed commercial real estate investment strategies. Our business combines the benefits of a strong operating history and well-funded sponsorship with the creative and entrepreneurial perspective of a small, nimble investment management team.


Founded in 2001, Guggenheim Real Estate was inspired by a common vision to bring real estate investment to the same level of sophistication enjoyed by other asset classes. We aim to capitalize on real estate's evolution into a more liquid marketplace, and to apply state-of-the-art analytics to achieve higher returns and greater diversification on behalf of our clients.

There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will achieve its investment objectives or is suitable for all investors. Diversification does not ensure profit nor protect against loss. Every asset class is subject to various risks that affect their performance in different market cycles. Fixed income investments are subject to certain risks including market, interest-rate, issuer, credit, and inflation risk. Equity investments are subject to market risk or the risk of loss due to adverse company and industry news, or general economic decline. Alternative investments are subject to market risk, currency risk, foreign investment risks, liquidity risks, higher fees and expenses, regulatory restrictions, and volatility due to speculative trading and use of leverage.
