Investors in the vehicle include endowments, foundations, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, family offices and high net worth individuals in the US, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Australia.
Madison focuses on capital partner replacements, equity monetizations and recapitalizations for Class A properties and portfolios located throughout the US, UK and Western Europe. It typically makes investments of between $50 million and $300 million.

Since being founded in 2002, Madison has raised $6.5 billion in capital commitments from more than 150 institutional investors worldwide and has invested in more than 185 million square feet of privately owned commercial real estate with a gross asset value of $116.1 billion.
