EJF Capital joins Artivest platform

Friday, June 14, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - Global alternative asset manager EJF Capital LLC is the latest firm to join the Artivest platform, delivering its opportunity zone solution to financial advisors and high-net-worth investors.

Arlington, Va.-based EJF Capital is a global alternative asset management firm with $7.3 billion in assets under management, focusing on regulatory event-driven investment themes.

"We are excited to partner with Artivest to broaden the availability of our investment strategies to leading financial advisory firms and their high net worth clients," said Neal Wilson, Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of EJF Capital.

EJF Capital specializes in financial sector investing, including real estate, and its programs seek to identify regulatory catalysts and structural changes that produce investment opportunities. The firm leverages a team of investment professionals in Washington DC (metropolitan area) and London to evaluate opportunities created by regulatory changes in both the U.S. and Europe. EJF Capital believes its regulatory expertise, real estate experience, and extensive network of financial and strategic partners, positions them well to capitalize on what many predict will be a once-in-a-generation investment opportunity.

Asheel Shah, EJF's Head of Real Estate and Senior Managing Director, said, "By being an early first mover in opportunity zones, we have been able to close multiple investments and build a strong pipeline of future opportunities before many funds even launched."

"At a time of growing demand for private illiquid alternatives among financial advisors and qualified high-net-worth investors, technology advancements are enabling greater access to both established and niche alternative categories," said Matt Osborne, Chief Investment Officer of Artivest. "We are proud to add EJF Capital to our steadily expanding platform serving financial advisors and qualified investors, growing in size and diversity with a range of alternative funds across sectors, stages and styles."

With the Internal Revenue Service having recently issued guidance on tax breaks for opportunity zone investors, Artivest published a white paper that outlines how to tap into the potential in this sector.
