Investment Opportunity

In an increasingly connected world, we believe there has never been a greater need for continued development of and capital investments in digital infrastructure assets. Such assets are required to support the considerable rise in mobile data and video consumption, as well as the increased popularity of cloud computing, big data analysis, IT outsourcing, e-commerce, and other emerging technology trends.

Digital Colony is uniquely positioned at the cross-section of the high-growth technology sector and the traditional real estate and infrastructure investment landscape to capitalize on opportunities to invest in the data centers, macro cell towers, fiber networks and small cell networks that make up both wireless and internet infrastructure.

As the rest of the world catches up to the rapid growth of mobile data consumption in the U.S., we are identifying and pursuing exciting investment opportunities around the world.
