Hodes Weill & Associates has expanded its capital raising and advisory capabilities by launching a new real assets practice. The Midtown Manhattan-based firm has hired Mark Rudovic as principal to lead the group’s day-to-day activities.
The new business will build upon the firm’s growing presence in real assets, including recent assignments in data centers, life sciences, student housing and cell towers. Along with advising on capital raisings, Hodes Weill will provide advice to real asset managers on M&A, restructuring and strategic initiatives.
“Real assets is a rapidly evolving sector that continues to grow and attract increasing capital flows, reflecting the strong desire of global institutions to include this asset class in their portfolios,” said Rudovic. “We see a tremendous opportunity to work with managers that possess complementary investment and technical expertise across a variety of strategies focusing on sectors that include digital infrastructure, water and energy transition.”
