Established in 1987 and headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Amstar is a real estate investment manager that acquires, develops and manages all major property types in the United States and in select international markets. The company’s two primary divisions include: i) Amstar Group LLC (“AGL”), which targets value-add acquisitions, major renovations and repositionings and opportunistic ground-up developments in the Americas, and ii) Amstar Global Partners Ltd. (“AGP”), which invests opportunistically in ground-up developments through commingled funds in select international locations.
AGL was founded to manage the real estate allocation of its large family office owner. In 2007, Amstar began expanding its capital base through AGP, as Amstar diversified its investment activities outside the United States. Amstar has grown to approximately $1.9 billion in assets under management as of September 30, 2016. Amstar’s clients and partners originate from across the globe and include U.S. and European institutions, insurance companies, private banks, fund of funds and other family offices. Amstar's core investment strength lies in its consistent application of disciplined underwriting standards while remaining nimble and decisive in taking advantage of opportunities in a rapidly changing global investment environment.
Amstar Group LLC is the sole owner of the registered trademark name, “Amstar” and is proud of the company’s 28 year track record of successfully investing in real estate on behalf of its family office owner and other third party clients.
