Berkadia, Knight Frank Forge Global Alliance

Berkadia has formed an alliance with global property consultancy Knight Frank, a partnership that will offer the firms’ clients access to domestic and internationally based capital. London-based Knight Frank and New York-based Berkadia offer a combined global network comprising more than 22,750 people across 558 offices in 57 territories, spanning all key capital hubs. 

“This newly formed relationship between our two privately held firms will have innumerable benefits for clients on both sides,” said Berkadia CEO Justin Wheeler. “Berkadia’s depth of industry knowledge and experience will flow seamlessly with Knight Frank’s vast global network and valuation expertise to shift our transaction life cycle into high gear.” 

Added William Beardmore-Gray, senior partner & group chairman at Knight Frank. “This is the beginning of a lasting partnership, one which will cultivate both our firms’ collective expertise and suite of services we can offer our global client base.”
