LGT Capital Partners is pleased to announce that LGT Capital Partners Holding (USA) Inc. has acquired Clerestory Capital Advisors, LLC ("CCA"), a New York-based investment and advisory firm that provides investors with global access to real estate via funds, co-investments and secondary investments.

Acquiring CCA will enhance our investment expertise in the real estate market and enable us to broaden and strengthen our multi-alternatives investment firm."
Joanne Douvas, Co-Founder of CCA, adds: "CCA is very pleased to join LGT Capital Partners in order to benefit from a global institutional investment platform, enhanced opportunities within product development and additional resources for further developing its client base."
