Bascom's Foundation

In 1996, Derek Chen, Jerome Fink, and David Kim founded The Bascom Group, LLC ("Bascom"), a private equity firm specializing in multifamily, commercial, non-performing loans, and real estate related investments and operating companies. Bascom sources value-add and distressed properties through foreclosure, bankruptcy, or short sales, and repositions them by adding extensive capital improvements, improving revenue, and reducing expenses using institutional-quality property management.

Bascom's Success

Bascom has completed over $6.5 billion in multi-family and commercial value-added transactions since 1996 including more than 200 multifamily properties and 55,000 units. The company currently ranks among the top 50 multifamily owners in the US. Bascom's subsidiaries and joint ventures include: Premier Business Centers, The Southern California Industrial Fund, Rushmore Properties, Bascom Portfolio Advisors, Shubin Nadal Associates, Spirit Investors, Bascom Northwest Ventures, Bascom Arizona Ventures, and the Realm Group.
