Forum Partners was founded in 2002 by Russell C. Platt and two co-founders.

Since establishment, Forum Partners has invested through a series of regional funds, separate accounts and platform-specific partnerships on behalf of leading institutional investors worldwide. 

Forum Partners’ global investments span North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region and are executed by strategically positioned offices in each market.

Forum Partners was founded on the belief that a successful real estate investment takes more than a good piece of real estate; it requires an experienced management team along with the alignment of interests among all key stakeholders.

Forum Partners invests with capital partners via a range of collaboration and outlook including market specific as well as regional geographies, co-mingled and discretionary funds, specific unilateral mandates and non-discretionary limited partnerships.

Since inception, Forum Partners has become known by its peers for its ability to manage complex investment opportunities that span a wide range of real estate asset types, investment sizes, countries and capital structures.

Forum Partners’ investment focus is bias to downside protection without mitigation of upside opportunity for capital partners benefit.

Forum Partners is privately owned by CEO and Founder Russell Platt and its senior executives.
