AFIRE is the association for international real estate investors focused on commercial property in the United States.

Executive Committee | Board of Directors | Staff


Established in 1988 as an essential forum for real estate investment thought leadership, AFIRE members gather throughout the year to help each other become Better Investors, Better Leaders, and Better Global Citizens through conversations, research, and analysis of real estate capital markets, cross-border issues, policy, economics, technology, and management.

Dialogue fostered by AFIRE is designed to help members gain competitive advantage through strategic and operational thought leadership, and to help improve the global real estate investment industry as a whole.


Representing the “who’s who” in the global real estate investment industry, AFIRE membership is exclusive to principals and senior executives. Benefits include market analyses, research, networking, and events. Membership is granted on a corporate basis and by invitation only.


To support the discussion beyond meetings, AFIRE publishes research, analysis, and original thought leadership that includes SUMMIT, the AFIRE journal of ideas, insights, and expert points-of-view; surveys on cross-border investing, leadership, and management best practices; and publications, including the AFIRE Guide to US Real Estate Investing.


AFIRE’s executive events are held digitally and in-person around the world, and each event is unique both in the caliber of leaders in the room—within and beyond the real estate industry—and in the quality of the discussion. As part of AFIRE’s House Rules, all events are interactive and protected. No one “pitches” their business, and attendance is restricted to delegates of member organizations and invited guests.
