GH Capital was formed in 2001 as a real estate private equity firm focused on affordable housing investments. Since then it has expanded to other asset classes within real estate, such as market-rate housing, self storage, and development.
Managed by Michael Clark, GH Capital focuses on investing with best-in-class real estate operators and developers, with a primary focus on the affordable housing space. GH Capital is different than many “funds” as its principals own both large and small real estate operating companies themselves. This gives them an enhanced understanding of the unique challenges and risks that operators and developers encounter. Therefore GH Capital is positioned to quickly evaluate and make investments, not only as a limited partner, but also as a general partner, providing co-investment, working capital, and making investments directly into the operating company.
