Our History

Seasoned Veterans, Nuanced Expertise

Brian Malliet and Nima Taghavi founded bkm Capital Partners in 2013 to institutionalize its Principals’ investment practice of unlocking value through strategic upgrades, hands-on management, and adaptive repositioning of multi-tenant industrial business parks in selected metro areas of the western U.S.
Malliet and Taghavi began collaborating on industrial property deals in the early 2000s. They quickly discovered a shared appreciation for investment opportunities offering meaningful upside potential with minimal risk to underlying principal capital.

Today, the leadership team and board of advisors that comprise bkm Capital Partners have come together to harness decades of collective and independent experience.


Our investment philosophy is to seek opportunities that offer meaningful upside potential with minimal risk to underlying principal capital.
