Digital Colony is a global investment firm with a unique focus on next generation mobile and internet infrastructure. Our team combines the sector knowledge of Digital Bridge Holdings, LLC, a leading owner and operator of digital infrastructure businesses, and the investment expertise of Colony NorthStar, Inc. (NYSE: CLNS), a leading real estate investment management firm. Together we identify and capitalize on differentiated investment opportunities within digital infrastructure.
In an increasingly connected world, we believe there has never been a greater need for continued development of and capital investments in digital infrastructure assets. Such assets are required to support the considerable rise in mobile data and video consumption, as well as the increased popularity of cloud computing, big data analysis, IT outsourcing, e-commerce, and other emerging technology trends.
Digital Colony is uniquely positioned at the cross-section of the high-growth technology sector and the traditional real estate and infrastructure investment landscape to capitalize on opportunities to invest in the data centers, macro cell towers, fiber networks and small cell networks that make up both wireless and internet infrastructure.
As the rest of the world catches up to the rapid growth of mobile data consumption in the U.S., we are identifying and pursuing exciting investment opportunities around the world.
We believe today's market conditions present a unique opportunity to invest in mobile and internet infrastructure
We believe demand may be driven by increasing consumption of mobile data and video
We expect digital infrastructure will benefit from growth and innovation in the technology sector
As other parts of the world approach U.S. data consumption levels, they will require more digital infrastructure investment
Investment opportunities are generally private-sector funded, requiring fewer government approvals
Need for technical expertise to support investment in assets that traditional infrastructure investors don’t have
The four key segments of mobile and internet infrastructure – towers, data centers, small cells, and fiber – each play an important role in the way people and businesses communicate, share information, and consume content. Digital Colony plans to focus its investment efforts in these areas, diversify across all of the digital infrastructure sub-sectors, and leverage the expertise honed over the last two decades in the space.
digital colony’s focus is to invest in four key segments of mobile and internet infrastructure to take advantage of physical infrastructure convergence ahead of the anticipated global 5G rollout and beyond.
