Our Culture

We often get asked, “What makes BAM different?” or, “What is BAM’s competitive advantage?” The answer is simple: our people! Ivan Barratt’s vision for the BAM Companies is a beautiful machine of great people who help us execute our wealth strategy for our investors. Profit has never been part of the equation for the BAM Management & BAM Construction; It is execution and culture.

The BAM Companies History

IVAN BARRATT FOUNDED

BARRATT ASSET MANAGEMENT (BAM)

After earning a finance degree from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, Ivan buys his first income producing property. Then, he starts an apprenticeship at Pittman Partners (Development Firm), focusing on feasibility, zoning, risk management, disposition, and acquisition. After learning to prepare while others panicked during the Great Financial Crisis, Ivan decides to put his investment thesis into practice and launches BAM. Starting small, Ivan uses his own capital, adheres to the “fail fast and fail small” mantra, and learns as he goes.
