Megafund Real Estate Arms

Currently a sophomore in college, been recruiting for junior summer internships for IBD at BB/EB. I plan on spending two years in real estate investment banking before moving on to REPE. What are the best real estate IB groups for Megafund real estate PE? Thanks

yeah, definitely. i feel like almost any REIB group at a BB will get the job done. I just see the few I mentioned thrown around most often as "top groups", specifically BAML. I hear the Barclays LA REIB team is super [email protected] OP if you don't want to grind out sweatshop hours maybe give that a look if possible.

Basically any of the top 10-15 banks are great. As a candidate, there is more to you than just your bank.

at the firm I interned at JPM/MS/BofA and a surprising number of Eastdil (real estate investment bank). Also seems to be a lot of poaching between MFs

Have a friend who was MS REIB / REPE and now is an MD at TPG REPE I believe. I think some other people I may be aware of went on to MF REPE from that group

Heard TPG's last equity fund crushed it – guy must be doing pretty well. Their credit business is a much, much different story.

MS REIB/REPE group is no longer a thing. Never understood how it was allowed in the first place. But completely separate groups now. Will get looks from everywhere coming from either though.
