Real Estate Investment Banking RankingsI'm curious if anyone can provide some insight on who the top players are within this industry group. My understanding is that historically it has been BAML, JPM, and DB. Who are the top firms in this space today and are there any banks that seem to be quickly moving up or down the ranks? Thanks... 1 year 5 months

Tenants need space to work in no matter what (even if its a smaller space, or a short term extension during tough times). Investment sales, on the other hand, can dry up completely in a downturn and you can be sitting on your hands for a couple years. 2 months 3 weeks
