There are few investors in New York City that have been more active and less recognized than that of Arthur Becker. Becker is a former stockbroker who turned his career in trading tech companies into a fortune. Since 2011 Becker has been working hard to make a name for himself in the Big Apple with unique investments that both push the limits of creativity while also earn big incentives when they finish and sell. Becker’s history as an investor is wide and varied and something that we definitely want to take a closer look at.
Right now Arthur Becker is currently wrapped up in several big developments in New York. He is currently collaborating with Kevin Maloney and Michael Stern on their big developmental project on 111 West 5th Street. This project, dubbed Billionaires’ Row, has given Becker the chance to come in as the quiet backer on something big. Quiet backers in the real estate industry focus on providing financing in order to bring projects to life, typically earning their cut on the back end. Becker is also working on a luxury condo development on Sullivan Street with the team at Madison Equities. Becker took on this job in exchange for a stake in the project. Right now Becker is slated to take ownership of two of the townhouses upon the completion of the project.
In a report by The Real Deal, beyond real estate, Becker has made a name for himself in a variety of other fields — some of which are interesting and completely unexpected. Becker has been a part of ventures that were both wildly successful (a Macadamia nut farm in Hawaii, for example) as well as others which didn’t quite hit the mark, like his custom binocular prototype — BNox. Throughout all of these investments Becker has maintained his focus on following his intuition and keeping his eyes open for anything that could be a difference maker. This has led Becker to work with ancient currencies in Africa, his own custom artwork, and various tech companies. Arthur Becker’s work continues to excite and we are interested to see where he goes in the future. You can visit The Real Deal for more info.
