Chicago CRE Veterans Launch New Investment Advisory and Services Platform

Geoffrey Adaire and Daniel Goelz's Initial Offering, a $50 Million Mezzanine Fund, to Focus on Value-Add Midwest Investments
January 26, 2018
A pair of long-time real estate executives have launched a new commercial real estate investment advisory and services firm in Chicago.

Geoffrey Adaire and Daniel Goelz have formed Triantan Ventures, doing business as Triantan, to provide investment products to private investors. The company will sponsor and manage private investment funds as well as provide brokerage, advisory and property services to its sponsored funds and third parties.

Adaire, a former JLL and Savills Studley exec who will serve as the firm's CEO, said, "We wanted to create an organization that blends both Dan’s and my particular CRE expertise. In our space, it's a bit unusual to see a structured finance guy and an asset/leasing guy teaming up to deliver the goods. The idea is that we work together on all projects and not stick to our particular space. We feel the blending of our expertise provides a unique dynamic critical in the successful execution of our investment programs and service engagements.”

Triantan Select Income, the company's initial offering, is a $50 million mezzanine fund focused on value-add investment opportunities in major Midwest markets.

“Mezzanine financing is a highly-specialized
area of commercial real estate finance - Geoff and I bring complementary property and capital
market experience that, with prudent underwriting and aggressive asset and portfolio management strategies, should transcend market cycles," said Goelz, a 30-year industry veteran who has completed more than $10 billion in structured finance transactions for JLL, Institutional Property Consultants and Capri Capital Partners. "While most of our competitors promote absolute return, we emphasize the identification, communication, and management of risk, beginning with the preservation of investor capital," added Goelz, who will serve as the firm's president.
