Who We Are
NorthStar Realty Europe is a European-focused commercial real estate equity REIT traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “NRE”. We believe we are the only company listed in the United States offering investors direct access to pan-European commercial real estate properties in a REIT structure. We seek to create value for our stockholders by building a high-quality portfolio of commercial real estate properties across Europe that are capable of generating a sustainable level of cash flow with potential for long-term income and capital value growth.
It is our belief that most capital intended for real estate investment in Europe has a restrictively narrow investment mandate. In contrast, we have a broad pan-European strategy that is flexible and enables us to identify a wide range of opportunities that offer the most compelling risk adjusted returns across different jurisdictions at varying points through real estate cycles. Our broad focus and the expertise and depth of our team has allowed us to execute complex, multi-jurisdictional transactions, which we believe differentiates us from many of our competitors. While our current portfolio predominantly consists of office properties, we may expand by acquiring other types of commercial real estate properties throughout Europe that are complementary to our existing portfolio as we seek to create value for our stockholders.
We believe that NorthStar has significant competitive advantages, including: management expertise; a diversified, high-quality commercial real estate portfolio; pan-European transaction experience; flexible, permanent capital and a long-term investment perspective. This should position us well to benefit from any recovery in the European commercial real estate markets and generate attractive returns for our stockholders.
We are externally managed and advised by an affiliate of NorthStar Asset Management Group Inc. (NSAM; NYSE: NSAM), an industry-leading global asset management firm focused on strategically managing real estate and alternative investment platforms in the United States and internationally. With over $25 billion in assets under management, NSAM has a reputation as a best-in-class, diversified commercial real estate investment and management organization with proven success managing multiple public companies throughout its history.
We are a Maryland corporation and intend to conduct our operations so as to qualify as a REIT for U.S. federal income tax purposes.
