About Hines


Hines, a privately owned global real estate investment, development and management firm, is the sponsor of REIT and BDC investment products sold through its broker/dealer affiliate, Hines Securities. Over the last 60+ years, Hines has become one of the world's largest real estate investment managers.

Hines’ focus on integrity, quality and conservative business practices has helped win the confidence of major corporations, pension funds, insurance companies and other institutional investors seeking diversification with commercial real estate by partnering with Hines or investing in Hines’ private programs. Please note that institutional investors invest on different terms and fee structures than individuals.

Hines observed the accelerating shift of corporations away from defined benefit pension plans toward defined contribution plans that require individuals to assume a greater role in charting the direction of their own investments. In an effort to allow individual investors to be able to access the expertise developed with institutional investors, the firm entered the retail investment market by sponsoring four investment products.
