FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) served as the financial advisor in the recently announced strategic relationship between Ivanhoé Cambridge, one of the world’s top institutional real estate investors, and Callahan Capital Partners (“CCP”), a leading real estate investment firm focused on acquiring high-quality office properties throughout the U.S. Bruce Schonbraun, co-head of FTI’s Real Estate Solutions practice, and Jahn Brodwin, a senior managing director, advised on the transaction.
Under the agreement, Ivanhoé Cambridge selected CCP to develop its U.S. office real estate platform and manage its expanding office portfolio in the U.S. office market. Ivanhoé Cambridge is an established, long-term real estate investor with a large international base and will leverage CCP’s strong position and expertise to grow its presence in the U.S. office sector. This strategic relationship with CCP will allow Ivanhoé Cambridge to capitalize on CCP’s recognized expertise in the national U.S. office market and afford immediate access to CCP’s fully operational platform. CCP’s mandate will be exclusive to Ivanhoé Cambridge.
“The Ivanhoe Cambridge/CCP transaction is a combination of two prominent forces in the real estate market and creates a powerful and dynamic combined platform in the U.S. office market,” noted Schonbraun.
