History

Raith Capital Partners was started in 2012 by Bill Landis, Nelson Hioe and Michael Suchy.  At its core, Raith is a deep value investor that focuses on sourcing and acquiring assets at a discount to intrinsic value, then leveraging its operating expertise to drive value at the underlying properties.  The firm was founded on the belief that a fully integrated real estate investment and asset management platform provides for a higher level of control, leading to better performance at the asset level and ultimately better returns for our investors.

Headquartered in New York City, Raith has decades of commercial real estate investment experience over multiple cycles in both the commercial real estate debt and equity markets. This breadth of experience gives Raith a unique perspective on relative value in the capitalization of the asset class. The Raith team has worked together since 2009 and believes in the importance of constantly reevaluating the investment landscape in which we operate.

Since inception, Raith has invested $1.2 billion of capital in transactions involving distressed debt, direct equity acquisitions, commercial mortgage-backed securities, subordinate debt, and first mortgages. Raith’s long-term relationships with investors are a critical measure of our success, the basis for which is open communication and the proper alignment of our capital.

Raith’s unique access to a diverse set of investment opportunities stems from its active involvement in both the US commercial real estate debt and equity markets.  For all of these opportunities, Raith leverages its vertically integrated asset management capabilities to add value through investment capital, operating synergies, and leasing. Once an acquisition is completed, Raith is able to roll out initiatives and best practices efficiently and quickly across its portfolio.
