EisnerAmper Forms Real Estate Private Equity Group
Move Driven by Significant Migration of PE Funds into Real Estate
As private equity funds have substantially increased their investments in real estate in recent years, EisnerAmper LLP announced that it has formed a Real Estate Private Equity Group.
Based in EisnerAmper’s New York City office, partner Lisa Knee will be the national leader of the Real Estate Private Equity Group. Assisting Lisa will be partner Todd Hankin, who will lead the West Coast Real Estate Private Equity practice from the firm’s San Francisco office; and partner Maureen Blair, based in the New York City office, who will lead the East Coast Real Estate Private Equity practice.
Combining the deep expertise of our Financial Services and Real Estate industry groups, this new group will be responsible for the delivery of private equity real estate services to clients as well as initiatives to maximize growth in this emerging sector.
“Closed-end real estate funds are quickly approaching $1 trillion AUM,” said Kenneth Weissenberg, Partner-in-Charge of the Real Estate Services Group. “As such, it’s crucial that we establish an effective infrastructure to service this key PE market segment,” added Peter Cogan, Co-Chair of the firm’s Financial Services Group.
