With experience in both privately held real estate funds as well as public real estate investment vehicles, Adam has seen a broad range of transactions and business cycles.
While studying engineering physics at the University of British Columbia, a growing curiosity in real estate and finance was cause for a change in direction.
After moving to Victoria to begin training with the National Rowing Team, Adam began his career in real estate development and investment. This move not only marked a milestone in his athletic pursuits, but in his real estate career as well.
After growing a real estate company and learning from the impacts of the credit crisis, the desire to invent and create something new resurfaced with a focus on housing finance. Adam Gant began researching mortgage markets and housing programs around the world, specifically Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, and Singapore. He quickly uncovered some very interesting approaches, and determined that these could be adapted to the open markets in North America.
Currently serving as an Advisor to a handful of real estate groups, Adam Gant helps real estate businesses solve difficult challenges and find ways to grow. Although he has a particular focus on capital structure and sourcing funding, he has a broad expertise in all aspects of real estate acquisition, finance, development, and management.
