Ladder Capital is a vertically integrated, commercial real estate (CRE) finance company that originates, invests in, and distributes a diverse portfolio of real estate-related products. As the credit crisis unfolded in 2007 – 2008, GI identified the opportunity to capitalize a new platform to fill the substantial void created as a result of the retrenchment of the traditional players in the space. GI backed an experienced management team to launch the platform in 2010. Since then, Ladder has made over $23 billion of CRE loans and investments and currently has a strong balance sheet with over $5 billion of total assets.
