What Members Are Saying


"AFIRE members are like a group of friends who happen to work in the same industry."

- German Private Equity Fund

  "AFIRE is an institutional investor-centric group that offers excellent networking events with like-minded investors."

- Canadian Pension Fund

"The speakers at the conferences are unparalleled and deliver thought-provoking ideas that reach far beyond real estate into the realms of global economics, politics and history."

- Swiss Pension Fund

"Consistently high quality/seniority of members and attendees."

- German Insurance Company

  "The most important feature of AFIRE is that it is both focussed in terms of its membership (principal/investor-driven) and in terms of its subject matter (inbound investment into US). Most other organisations try to be too many things and please all the people all of the time. As a result they end up less valuable. The consequence of AFIRE's focus is that it is a 'club' with a smallish number of members and all the better for it."

- UK Institutional Investor

"To meet like-minded foreign investors in US real estate in an informal setting."

- Dutch Pension Fund

"It is a platform to comingle with institutional investors in US real estate at a very high level, concentrated in one place.

- Middle Eastern Institutional Investor

"Ability to network and liaise with peer investors to compare thoughts on investment strategy, deal structuring, tax issues."

- Asian Sovereign Wealth Fund

  "The ability to engage with other like-minded institutional investors at a senior level is the key attraction; this is supplemented by some very strong technical commentary of major topics of mutual interest."
