GID’s commitment to research is a long-standing tradition within the firm. A combination of proprietary in-house research and leading third-party analytics forms the bedrock of our investment decision process. GID applies rigorous analyses to create a top-down investment thesis married to bottom-up deal sourcing and underwriting. The process favors secular over cyclical demand drivers consistent with the firm’s long-term investment strategy and leverages GID’s network of in-market professionals and real time operating data to better identify relative value across investment opportunities.
GID utilizes quantitative-driven solutions, including geospatial analysis, and subscribes to a number of national data providers, including Moody’s, PPR, CoStar, Green Street, Yardi, and Real Capital Analytics to supplement our internal market research capabilities. GID has been a data contributor to the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries for over 20 years and closely follows private/public, debt/equity trends.
