We are first and foremost an investor in our own strategies. We suggest no investment to our co-investors unless HMC’s or its affiliates’ capital is also committed. We believe that fact alone is the best measure of our confidence in our ability to source, close, develop and exit transactions profitably.
HMC’S INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
We make investment decisions only after methodical assessment, with an instinctive bent toward bold moves tempered by common sense, experience and, most of all, discipline. We invest in a variety of asset classes to build a portfolio with a composition that we believe balances risk and return.
1. Fundamental research drives our entrepreneurial approach to investing in both private and public markets, and has done so for over 20 years.
2. Our disciplined approach to managing downside risk is critical to preservation of capital.
3. Our institutional-quality operational infrastructure provides our clients with the appropriate level of transparency across all strategies.
4. We maintain true alignment with our clients through the substantial commitment of HMC partner capital; on equal terms and conditions as all our clients.
DEDICATED INVESTMENT TEAMS
Each asset class has a discrete and dedicated team of investment professionals with the experience and contacts to locate and analyze available investment opportunities. HMC’s investment teams are located in Birmingham, Alabama; New York, New York; Chicago, Illinois; Dallas, Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; Richmond, Virginia; San Francisco, California; London, United Kingdom; Hong Kong; Madrid, Spain; and Paris, France – close to the relevant markets for their respective strategies.
Since we formed our first real estate fund in 1995, we have attracted investors from many sectors, including endowments and foundations, funds of funds, family offices, pension funds, financial institutions, insurance companies and high net worth individuals.
