Announcing Anagram Ventures, New Independent Investment Firm from the Dynamic Minds Behind J Street Hospitality

San Diego Based Firm Brings Creative, Nimble and Proven Approach to Hospitality Investment

USA, San Diego, California. June 22, 2020

The creative and strategic team behind J Street Hospitality, an innovative real estate investment, development, operations and asset management firm specializing in lifestyle-focused hotels, today announced the launch of affiliate firm, Anagram Ventures. The private, independently owned firm, helmed by President Sajan Hansji was created to provide value for stakeholders during this new economic cycle through the acquisition, development and sale of hospitality-related assets.

Inspired by the concept of an anagram, where rearranging the letters of a word yields an entirely new thought, Anagram Ventures aims to identify and act on unique opportunities by exploring creative solutions such as debt restructuring, alternative uses of real estate, brand repositioning or a reduction in operating costs to sustain investment. The firm's principals bring a nuanced understanding of market trends, consumer needs and property valuations to identify and acquire assets that it believes are likely to yield strong returns.

"Our principals offer a streamlined approach that delivers expertise in hotel operations, real estate deal structuring, and capital markets - all under one roof', said Sajan Hansji. "The Partnership's objective is to negotiate and acquire hotels, by targeting the 'all-in' basis, with a special focus on unique factors that may create immediate value and/or long-term risk mitigation. Through our multifaceted experience, we use a relationship-focused, solution-driven, and radically simple approach; allowing us to sustain until the market is right for an exit," he said.

Anagram Ventures' management team brings deep expertise in high barrier-to-entry markets and has successfully invested into and developed hotel projects totaling more than $600 million. The independent firm is entrepreneurial in nature and nimble, allowing Anagram Ventures to move quickly and decisively to develop creative solutions unique to each project. Anagram Ventures also brings to bear strategic and proven partnerships across financing, construction, hotel operations and real estate development, having worked with Marriott International, Bank of America, Swinerton Builders, Delawie Architects, CBRE, and others. Its principals see the coming months and years as a period of great promise for stakeholders.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
