About IBS Investment Bank

When it comes to investing, trust is important. That is why we place particular value in executing our relationship-centric approach. The principal partners of IBS Investment Bank own direct equity stakes in each fund managed by the firm. This ensures that our investment teams maintain their entrepreneurial focus and that their business interests remain united with the short-term and long-term interests of our clients.


By maximizing value through intensive post-acquisition management IBS seeks attractive risk-adjusted returns by investing in real estate, non-performing loans, distressed assets, real estate-dependent operating companies, and select commercial and residential development opportunities throughout the continental United States.
