A Message from the CEO

Kevin A. Shields, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Griffin Capital Corporation

Dear Guest,

Welcome to our website. We truly appreciate you taking the time to learn more about our company and our investment offerings. At the heart of our website we provide comprehensive information about our various investment products, their strategies and objectives, and the teams that run them. In addition to our healthcare and essential asset non-listed REIT offerings, we also provide information about our ’40 Act interval fund, Griffin Institutional Access Real Estate Fund.

Griffin Institutional Access Real Estate Fund provides investors access to a blend of private real estate funds and public real estate securities, selected by our experienced advisory and sub-advisory team, in a vehicle that provides frequent NAV pricing and periodic liquidity. We believe this fund is a great complement to our REITs.

More information on all of our products can be found under the INVESTMENT OFFERINGS button on our landing page.

We hope you will continue to take advantage of the wealth of resources available on our website, including:

  • detailed biographies of our experienced and expanding leadership team
  • interactive maps that enable you to click on individual properties and connect to a property gallery with multiple images
  • robust educational information
  • timely news updates on products and acquisitions
  • contact information for your wholesaling team (for financial advisors)
  • a literature section including a prospectus and subscription documents to facilitate your client’s initial, and perhaps additional, investment in our investment products. We also provide existing investors and their financial advisors access to their electronic account statements
  • and finally, our website was built using ‘responsive web design’ and optimized to work on every device and every screen size, no matter how large or small, so our new features can be accessed by the growing number of our broker-dealer and financial advisor partners who are accessing our website on a tablet or other mobile device

As is the case with everything we do, we welcome your feedback and questions. Our goal is to be as transparent and accessible as possible, so please let us know how we are doing in that regard.

Throughout our site you will notice our logo, which features the griffin, a mythological beast combining the keen vision and foresight of the eagle with the strength and nobility of the lion, known through centuries as the "guardian of wealth." This focus on wealth preservation is the founding principle behind Griffin Capital, and all of us in executive management take this on as our personal responsibility. We don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk. We are personally invested in every investment product Griffin Capital Securities brings to market, and in every property Griffin owns and thus, proudly stand shoulder-to-shoulder with each and every investor. We simply could not run the company any other way.

Thank you again for your interest. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.

Kevin A. Shields | Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Griffin Capital Company, LLC
