I'm curious about what Real Estate "Investment Banking" might be all about. I use quotations because I do not know if this is actual investment banking. I work at one of the 3 brokerage houses as a MF capital markets analyst and I see that our firm has a REIB division and the job postings have me interested, but can anyone shed some light on what a Real Estate "Investment Banking" analyst would do at a CBRE/JLL shop?
Our company has acquired a lot of smaller companies throughout the years to grow our overall service line, but is this true M&A? Are they really taking companies public?? (I know that they're not).
Anyways, this is the job description: M&A, strategic advisory, private capital raising, credit and asset-backed securitizations, sale/leaseback arrangements, bond financing, corporate and municipal credit advisory services, asset/portfolio disposition, debt placement and recapitalization.
Insight from anyone is much appreciated and if you happen to work in REIB, I'd feel blessed if you shared what you do.
