Not a complicated discussion, but just wondering for my own curiosity. We are at ~100M aum (300M total value) and have about 9.

I do AM for lifeco debt portfolio. We have $50-$100 bil aum (we don't just manage our firm's capital but Fannie, Freddie, etc) and there are 10 analysts, 30 asset managers, and 8 office people who are directly related to AM

That's a lot btw of people and AUM. Probably hard to feel like you're contributing when you're on of 30 asset managers

At the asset manager level, probably. But as an analyst I have 4 asset managers coming to me with work so I do feel pretty involved And actually the AUM figure I stated above was for the world which there are other AM offices abroad. But the US portfolio is about $50 bil so I think I'm the sole AM analyst for a $10 bil portfolio which is cool to think about. But since it's a lifeco, pay isn't that impressive

I work for a LP capital investor. We have ~$4 B AUM (equity). We have about 7 RE professionals and an army of accountants that manage this. As we are LP capital providers we rely heavily on our operating partners/GP to provide a lot of the asset level reporting and metrics. We try to avoid getting overly involved when things are going well.

LifeCo debt. 3 analysts, 2 VPs for ~6bil. Then you have about 10 other clerical staff.

Similar to @picklemonkey LP capital investor. We have $6B AUM with 12 RE deal members and back office that is easily 2-3x that. Not even sure if I know most of the back office people.

It really is insane how many accounting jobs RE indirectly creates. Their work seems mind-numbingly boring too

~$80B to about 250 (FO, MO & BO) employees.
Its an Institutional AM

Vertically integrated (acquisitions, fundraising, asset mgmt, construct mgmt, property MGMT)on the gp side. Raise internal funds as well as partner with PE LP's. ~$1B in gross asset value. Probably 40 excluding property MGMT positions.

That is literally insane. We have about $1.5B AUM and there are, like, 6 employees. Add in our sister company, which has about $2B AUM and another 5 employees total.

including accountants, asset managers, construction & admins? I feel like 6 is insane..

$700MM AUM - owner operator
125 employees total (corporate & @ property level)
~25 @ corporate

Would be interesting to see which firms have the highest AUM per investment professional. I think equity AUM per investment professional could be an interesting metric.

$100B but only half is actual investment management, half prop management. Somewhere around 4000 employees worldwide
