Which Real Estate Fund Managers are Registered with the SEC?

After looking at whether a fund manager is an investment adviser and whether real estate is a security, I looked at the Private Equity Real Estate News list of the 30 biggest private equity real estate firms in the world (.pdf). (Disclosure: my company is on the list.)

How many of them are already registered with the SEC.

1 The Blackstone Group Yes
2 Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing Yes
3 Tishman Speyer
4 Goldman Sachs Real Estate Principal Investment Area Yes
5 Colony Capital Yes
6 LaSalle Investment Management Yes
7 Beacon Capital Partners
8 The Carlyle Group Yes
10 Lehman Brothers Real Estate Private Equity Yes
11 CB Richard Ellis Investors Yes
12 Westbrook Partners
13 Starwood Capital Group Yes
14 AREA Property Partners
15 Prudential Real Estate Investors Yes
16 Rockpoint Group
17 daVinci Advisors
18 Grove International Partners
19 Hines
20 Lubert-Adler Real Estate Yes
21 RREEF Alternative Investments Yes
22 Walton Street Capital Yes
23 Citi Property Investors Yes
24 Angelo, Gordon & Co Yes
25 Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Principal Investments Yes
26 Shorenstein Properties
27 Lone Star Funds Yes (Hudson Advisers)
28 Heitman Yes
29 Aetos Capital Yes
30 Rockwood Capital

If you do the math, 19 of the top 30 are already registered with the SEC as Investment Advisers. I expect to see several more in the “yes” column before July 21, 2011, the registration deadline under Dodd-Frank.

The PERE 30 measures capital raised for direct real estate investment through commingled vehicles, together with co-investment capital, over the past five years.
