overview

Although Gazit Horizons is a relatively new company, our experienced management team and strong balance sheet have been around for decades. Led by Chairman Chaim Katzman, the founder and CEO of Gazit Globe, and CEO Jeff Mooallem, a long-time retail real estate investor and operator in urban markets throughout the country, Gazit Horizons’ executives have over 70 years of collective experience and relationships in acquiring and managing operating assets and personnel in our target markets. To date, we have acquired over $250,000,000 of properties in three cities, with a goal of investing between $1 Billion and $3 Billion in the next several years.

approach

Our approach to building a successful business is simple. We are a well capitalized long term holder of assets in irreplaceable locations, which allows us to patiently seek out the highest and best use for all of our properties without having to chase a short term “flip” profit. We are an experienced and global investor, which allows us to use lessons learned in cities all over the world to develop and adhere to our investment thesis. And we are a small and decisive management team, which allows us to act quickly and nimbly on the opportunities that best reflect that investment thesis. Those three principles taken together – strength, experience and efficiency – form the basis of what differentiates us and allows us to best serve our investors, our tenants and our customers.
