The firm is opportunistic and has the resources and flexibility to pursue multiple investment strategies in many property types (e.g. affordable housing, market rate multifamily, industrial). Throughout its history, the firm has developed and applied analytical insights to exploit structural, cyclical, and situational dislocations that create opportunity for pricing advantage. Most of the investments made by the firm - including many made on a joint venture basis - come from leveraging relationships created over multiple decades.

Job Description

ERI is seeking to hire either an Analyst or Sr. Analyst to support its Acquisitions team.

5. Conduct research into investment areas or Property types where ERI has not previously invested.

6. Create, maintain and update certain internal databases.
