Investing in real estate companies
Established in 2011, Compatriot Capital directs the real estate investment strategy for Sammons Enterprises, Inc., a diversified global holding company.
Compatriot’s strategy is to acquire meaningful ownership positions with shared governance in companies with stable, tenured, and talented management teams and a vision for long-term success. Compatriot invests in best-in-class companies generally focused on a single real estate sector (e.g. hospitality, multifamily, industrial, retail, office, real estate services, etc.) In connection with these investments, Compatriot will consider providing co-investment capital for asset and balance sheet growth.
We run marathons,
At Compatriot, we look for companies already on a trajectory towards long-term success. Our investments are intended to be long-term, without any pre-determined plan or time horizon to sell or divest. We pursue opportunities that represent both the potential for investment and for true partnership. We share governance with an understanding that we will work together to grow the business platform.

The History of Compatriot
Sammons Enterprises, Inc., the holding company for Compatriot Capital, was established in 1938. Sammons is a privately-held, diversified holding company that owns and operates businesses across a variety of industries. With thousands of employees around the world and assets in excess of $71 billion, the company ranks among the largest privately owned companies in the world.
Compatriot's predecessor, Sammons Realty Corporation, was formed in the 1980s to invest in hospitality and commercial real estate assets. As the company grew, Sammons decided to make real estate a core business and recognized the need to take a more thoughtful, long-term approach to investing in the real estate industry. In 2011, Sammons Realty was rebranded Compatriot Capital and was charged with directing the holding company's real estate investment strategy.
