Arthur Becker is becoming an increasingly popular name in biotechnology and real estate circles as his investment portfolio expands. He has made headlines for his recent successes in his real estate investments, and he has even greater plans for the future. Here is a brief insight into the mind of Arthur Becker.
Arthur Becker’s Investment Positions
As per The Real Deal, Arthur Becker is a managing member of Madison Partners, LLC. Madison Partners is an investment firm that specializes in early biotechnology startups and real estate, two of Becker’s main investment assets. He says that the idea for Madison Partners, LLC came to him during his time at ZINIO and NaviSite where he gained a lot of exposure to biotechnology and real estate.
His focus in real estate increased after he sold NaviSite in 2011. His first major investments in real estate were in Miami and New York City. Today, however, he has invested in property in many states across the U.S. He reckons that he has invested over $500 million in real estate projects all over New York through Madison Partners, LLC.
His latest investment saw him get three townhouses in on Sulivan Street in Soho, one of the most pristine neighborhoods in New York City. He got the houses in exchange for his stake in a condominium project that is in the same neighborhood. Rumor has it that Becker has already made plans to move into one of the townhouses, and he plans to lease off or sell the others for what is projected to be a handsome return.
Becker has also invested in several early-stage biotechnology companies. His interest in biotechnology is inspired by the potential breakthroughs in the treatment of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. In fact, he describes his involvement in the sector as active.
A Long Road to Success
Arthur Becker has not always been the successful investor he is today. He claims to have tried his hand in many businesses and failed numerous times. Today, however, he attributes his success to intelligent tenacity and information. He advises upcoming investors and entrepreneurs to network with colleagues and be at the forefront of developments in their particular industries.
