AMG Capital was formed to invest in high quality U.S. real estate assets, specifically “Class A” quality, urban multi-family developments in high growth cities that are experiencing exceptional job and population growth. The firm is staffed with highly experienced U.S. real estate professionals with expertise in the U.S. and international real estate markets.

Managing Director Ying Li is based in Beijing and is a member of the Investment Committee which collectively has over 100 years of real estate investment experience.
The U.S. economy has experienced consistent growth since 2009. This economic growth creates jobs that drive demand for multi-family rental projects. AMG Capital is focused on markets that are experiencing high job growth and population growth, such as Houston, Dallas, Austin, Seattle, Denver, Orlando, Phoenix and Atlanta. It also invests in supply constrained markets like New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and Washington, D.C. Additionally, multi-family investments have out-performed all other real estate asset classes in the U.S. for six of the past seven years.
AMG Capital’s management team has long standing relationships with the top developers in the U.S. and will utilize those relationships to build its investment portfolio.
AMG Capital is committed to invest in new developments along with its investment partners which include institutional investors and high net worth investors from both the People’s Republic of China and Hong Kong.
