20 Minutes With: Bobby Turner on Creating Social Impact


October 01, 2019

Bobby Turner is a social impact investor with star-studded connections.

The celebrity alliances began in 2001, when Turner, then co-founder and CEO at Canyon Capital Realty Advisors, joined with former basketball star Earvin “Magic” Johnson to launch a series of real estate funds designed to spur revitalization in neglected urban neighborhoods across the country. Over a dozen years, Turner and Johnson raised $2 billion in private equity capital that spurred nearly $6 billion in urban revitalization, Turner says.
