TDA History

TDA was incorporated in 1980, and is a Registered Investment Advisor under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 specializing in the management of real estate portfolios for Taft-Hartley and corporate pension funds.  As a Registered Investment Advisor, TDA’s operations and performance are overseen by the State Department of Labor. 

After eleven years in the general mortgage and investment banking business, TDA was retained in 1991 by a major Southern California construction trade pension fund as their real estate investment manager. 

The client wanted to match the level of experience of its real estate manager with that of its Wall Street securities portfolio manager.  By concentrating attention on real estate investments and working in concert with the securities portfolio manager, TDA has significantly enhanced the real estate portfolio while coordinating the overall goals of the plan, avoiding the compromises that are often present when mixed objectives exist.
