Aligning institutional capital with strong partnerships across growth markets
Founded by Sam Zell. Based on his principles.
The critical question as a global investor today is, "where’s the demand?"
Our target markets have favorable demographic fundamentals for medium and long-term growth. These countries have built-in demand, national stability, investable size and scale, and a respect for the rule of law. EI’s job is to respond to the demand opportunities in our markets, but not to rush.
