About AION

What We Do

AION Partners was founded by Michael Betancourt and Siraj Dadabhoy who collectively have over 50 years of experience investing in real estate and have been investing together since 2001. AION Partners acts as Operating Partner on core-plus, value-add, and opportunistic real estate investments across the U.S. Since inception, AION has acquired and operated a $1.9 billion portfolio of multifamily assets comprised of 53 properties. AION’s current portfolio consists of over 20,000 apartments across 62 communities, located primarily in the greater Mid-Atlantic and Mid-West region of the U.S.

The Team identifies and capitalizes acquisitions by tapping an exclusive, established network of high net worth individuals and institutional partners for equity. On a historical basis, all deals were capitalized on a deal-by-deal basis.

To create a diversified platform for AION’s investors and build off it’s 10 year track record of investing in multi-family properties, AION successfully closed its first discretionary vehicle with $52MM of committed capital in 2019. AION has invested in workforce housing assets across the United States, including the Sun Belt, and has chosen to focus on the Mid-Atlantic and Mid-West Regions given its favorable market characteristics.

Our primary focus is to deliver superior, risk-adjusted returns to an exclusive investor group. We do so by surveying the macro-level real estate market, identifying undervalued and undercapitalized sectors with strong growth dynamics, and aggressively pursuing market- specific acquisitions.

We then get to work creating value while preserving yield; efficiently executing on our business plans by utilizing active management techniques and favorable access to the capital markets.
