Hodes Weill’s co-founder says managers are finding success outside of blind pool structures.
Doug Weill sees opportunity for managers corralling capital in customized fund structures, despite a continued slowdown in private real estate fundraising in 2017.

Weill also highlighted multifamily and industrial, among other property types, as areas of continued investor interest.
