Colony Capital Inc is a global real estate and investment-management firm. The company segments its operations into real estate equity, real estate debt, and investment management businesses. Colony Capital's asset portfolio and total revenue generation are split primarily between its real estate equity and real estate debt divisions. The real estate equity unit generates revenue largely from its investments in light industrial and other real estate assets in the United States and Europe. The real estate debt group principally receives interest income from loans and debt securities that it either acquires or originates. These securities are mainly senior and subordinated commercial mortgage-backed securities collateralized by properties in America.
