Beyond Global Management combines investment expertise and a data-driven intelligence platform to give you better insight into your investment performance.
Experienced Investment Leadership
Beyond’s leadership team is comprised of 5 highly knowledgeable investment professionals that collectively have over 100 years of successful financial experience across the four phases of market cycles.
Our leadership has experience in managing multi-asset class funds, private equity funds, and various real estate strategies. That experience, along with their industry reputation and the relationships built over the years, together with significant in-house resources and professional expertise, makes it possible for Beyond to offer unique investment opportunities.
Due to the cross-disciplinary nature of our skilled investment professionals, Beyond’s investment platform continuously analyzes valuable market data to identify potential future investment opportunities. We’ve invested significant resources into market-leading data services, which drives our capital allocation efforts.
We utilize the latest financial technology in the design of our investment structures with the goal of reducing volatility and hedging against downside risk during times of instability.
We are continuously adopting new technologies to help us in our goal to deliver higher yields, expand access to our private funds, and delivery purpose-built guidance for qualified investors. We strive to make the real estate market more transparent, make risks more controllable, and offer investments that provide income and growth opportunities.
Our Track Record
We are value investors with a perceptive, opportunistic approach to investing. Beyond seeks to capitalize on market dislocation and changing economic factors to identify the most attractive opportunities in any market condition.
Additionally, as both a debt and equity investor, Beyond has the flexibility to invest opportunistically in bull markets, and more prudently in bear markets. As we continue to grow, we remain committed to upholding superior standards within this defined focus.
We have established a track record of attractive, risk-adjusted real estate investment returns that beat inflation, generate income, and offer liquidity, which has earned us the trust of our clients. We are continuously adapting to deliver higher yields and expand access to alternative investments.
However, don’t just take it from us! While we are still a young and innovative firm, our entry points in certain investments speak for themselves. The chart below identifies the moments in time in which we’ve set up funds in specific markets or asset classes and the subsequent results of those investments.
Our entry points in certain investments speak for themselves
Beyond Global Management Equity Entry Points
Credit-Heavy Investment Emphasis As Conditions Change
Beyond’s unique approach allows focus to shift to credit investing, imperative in a high interest rate environment, while still maintaining a necessary presence in the equity market.
In the below chart, you can see Beyond’s entry point as we focused more on a credit-heavy investment strategy. By accurately timing the initial set-up and administrative process of our credit funds, we were well positioned to invest in strong fixed-income investments when the macroeconomy began to demonstrate headwinds. Despite shifting risk profiles associated with a turbulent economic environment, our private market selection process allows for incredible opportunities to invest. As we anticipate a rising interest rate environment, our goal is to shorten investment terms for liquidity of investment. Once we identify the peak and plateau of interest rate hikes, we will consider locking in longer investment terms for high-yield offerings to our dedicated investor base.
