Manhattan, NY Colliers International’s Capital Markets & Investment Services clients gained another resource with the addition of Ameet Amin to the firm’s N.Y. team as a senior managing director. Amin arrives as yet another exciting asset at a time of growth for both the firm’s capital markets platform and the New York operation overall.
Late last year, a 12-person team led by Scott Latham, Richard Baxter and Yoron Cohen and including accomplished professionals Stephen Shapiro and Jason Gold joined Colliers, launching the firm into the region’s top tier of service providers on the capital markets/investment side of the commercial real estate business.
Amin brings over 15 years of investment management, capital raising, financing, joint venture, recapitalization, workout and advisory expertise to Colliers. He will tap this experience to expand the firm’s suite of capital markets and advisory solutions for investor clients. In addition to transaction origination and execution, Mr. Amin will oversee Colliers’ Capital Markets analytics teams focused on investment and recapitalizations in New York.
Amin joins Colliers after 10 years at JOSS Realty Partners, a commercial real estate investment management firm. As Principal, Head of Acquisitions, he helped grow the organization from inception to over $1 billion of real estate assets and participated in $250 million of equity raises. Mr. Amin also bought, financed, managed and sold over 3 million square feet of commercial real estate while executing core through opportunistic investment strategies in New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Miami.
Before JOSS Realty Partners, Mr. Amin was Deputy Chief Operating Officer of U.S. Investment Banking at Deutsche Bank and served in the Financial Institutions Mergers & Acquisitions Groups at Lazard and Wasserstein Perella. He earned an MBA from Columbia Business School and a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
