At Glencove, we achieve strong financial returns for investors through the acquisition, development, or recapitalization of hotel assets, and the investment and scaling of dynamic lifestyle hospitality brands.
We invest directly with partners: High Net Worth investors, family offices, institutional investors, and private equity funds.
Our Investment Focus: United States, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
Glencove Capital sources, negotiates, closes and asset manages all acquisitions and developments.
This involves surveying the market for potential hotel acquisitions, either existing properties or new developments. We will consider factors such as location, brand, condition, and potential upside.
Once a potential investment has been identified, we will conduct a thorough due diligence process to assess the property's financial and physical condition. This may involve reviewing financial statements, inspecting the property, and obtaining expert opinions.
Once we decide to proceed with an investment, we will structure the transaction in a way that maximizes returns and minimizes risk. This may involve using a variety of financial instruments, such as debt, equity, and joint ventures.
Once the investment has been closed, we will manage the property on behalf of its investors. This may involve overseeing operations, marketing the property, and making strategic decisions about renovations and upgrades.
Glencove Capital’s dedicated team focuses on investing in unique one-of-a-kind lifestyle hotel assets managed by an experienced hotel operating company. We acquire existing cash-flowing assets and also consider highly selective hotel development opportunities in high barrier to entry markets.
Glencove Capital invests in distinctive lifestyle hospitality operators and brands led by their creative founders with the objective of scaling these companies nationally and internationally.
Glencove Capital actively asset manages all investments to protect its investors and the success of its investments.
