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 Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
