ORIX Real Estate Capital, a business unit of ORIX Corporation USA (“ORIX USA”), has announced its change of brand to Lument effective immediately. In making this change, Lument is unifying its legacy brands—Hunt Real Estate Capital, Lancaster Pollard, and RED Capital Group—under a single banner. “We chose Lument, with its associations with light and energy, to emphasize that our combined company has the expertise, products, resources, and most importantly, the drive and determination to help guide our clients successfully, even during these uncertain times,” said CEO James Flynn.
The rebranding is an important milestone. It reflects the progress Lument has made restructuring its organization, streamlining its processes, and investing in new technology in the months following the company’s merger in April 2020. Lument’s goal is to take the best practices from all three legacy companies and elevate them even further.
“We believe that Lument has something unique to offer,” said Terry Suzuki, president and CEO of ORIX Corporation USA. “The compelling factor that led us to bring these companies together was their shared commitment to building relationships and driving their clients’ success. As Lument, we can draw on the strength of our combined platforms and the depth of ORIX’s balance sheet to make that personal service more powerful than ever.”
Lument’s results so far this year indicate that the market appreciates these advantages. Despite obstacles posed by the pandemic, Lument’s portfolio has continued to grow. “A critical reason for our success is the quality of our people,” Flynn said. “Their knowledge, creativity, and extraordinary commitment have been essential to our ability to perform strongly in the midst of the pandemic even as we were integrating our company.”
