OUR APPROACH

GJB Inc. believes diversification is integral to reducing risk and creating long term substantial upside. 

We uncover value by identifying innovative products, businesses, and real estate opportunities, and subsequently becoming a capital partner. Typically, we target different businesses with new and disruptive technology in sectors where we have expertise and there is potential for long-term growth. We aim to invest in companies where our capital can drive transformation that unlocks the company’s potential.

GJB Inc. focuses on long-term opportunities, but also follows trading patterns and publicly traded securities to maximize portfolio growth through active portfolio management. We are patient and committed to achieving excellent long-term returns, and in the process, make companies stronger.

From the beginning, GJB Inc. has pursued a diversified portfolio. In 2012, our diversification focus led to greater investment in commercial real estate. After several successful real estate projects were completed, GJB's executive team formed Southwest Beacon Investments (SWB). Through SWB, we are growing our network of investors to invest in larger, more lucrative projects. Learn more about SWB here.
