Fortress #15 is starting hire. I interned there through a connection but the schools they were planning on getting interns to hire from were Wharton anything, Cornell Hotel, USC RE finance, or any other top 10 school if there is previous RE internship experience. Watch out, you will be expected to complete an underwriting in your first week...

All in, a first year should expect to make between 90-140k at firms within the top 10. Big range but there really is no "standard" like with IB. I work at a firm not even on this list and made within this range my first year.

Anyone looking for a job could take all these, do research and find who their GPs are. Then between the two have a pretty robust list of just about every RE player excluding the Family Office world.

I think it would be pretty tough to find the GP in deals coming from someone who works for a large GP. How would you go about this?

I know this is tracking capital raised, but over what amount of time? I'm eager to see what next year's will look like given the current environment. A lot of the top funds on the list are still raising a solid amount from what I've heard!

As I've been tracking this list over the last few years, I'm really impressed with what AEW has accomplished. They were in like the 50s years ago and are now at 6. They've been growing really fast.

PERE 100 is based on the amount of capital raised over the last 5 years. The IPE list is based on assets under management.

PERE only includes capital from value-add and opportunistic funds raised in last 5 years. IPE is AUM, which would be total value of real estate assets owned, so a lot of the lifeco funds will be on that list since they own a lot of core assets.

Jun 18, 2020 - 11:56am

PERE is capital raised, for closed-end real estate funds, and IREI / IPE are AUM.

Capital raised is easier to audit, and shows to ability of firms to raise capital.

AUM lacks a standard definition, and includes fee bearing capital outside of closed-end funds, and as such it can be easily gamed*, but is a pretty proxy for the size of a portfolio.

*Hines for example reports AUM including property management contracts, most insurance company managers (think Barings etc.) include daddy's money as well as third parties, and dumpster fires like Colony Capital will include assets on their own balance sheets.
