Our Company

We specialize in middle-market transactions in all sectors and across the risk spectrum

With decades of investment experience behind him, founder Jeff Kaplan has watched the commercial real estate industry evolve from a local, entrepreneurial business to one of the largest asset classes in institutional investment management.  When he and partners Tim Yantz, based in New York City, and Andrew McDaniel, based in London, set out to build a new investment firm in 2009, they were able to take their best ideas over multiple cycles and create a focused and consistent investment process that serves as the backbone of Meadow Partners. Together the partners have been responsible for the acquisition and ongoing asset management of over $30 billion of real estate assets located in the United States, Europe, and Asia through over 300 separate transactions.

The firm currently manages six commingled opportunistic funds, two core/core-plus separate accounts and a perpetual life vehicle on behalf of blue-chip U.S. institutional investors.

Operating Partners

Auerbach Funds operating investment structure, direct expertise and readily available capital provides a substantial advantage on the ability to “win” transactions. Sponsors appreciate our transactional and management experience, which has lead us to be a trusted and sought after partner.



Fund I and Fund II holdings represent over $273.7 million of total property value at initial capitalization; over 3.3 million square feet of rentable space; over 2,400 residential units across 8 states. Auerbach Funds invests in assets across markets that have high population growth, infrastructure spending, pricing disparity, growth at much faster rates than core markets in terms of population, infrastructure spending, and job creation.


“At our 10-year anniversary, I reflected back ‘Have we achieved what we set out to achieve?’ Having this narrow market focus allows us to go a mile deep. Understanding the nuances of each micro-market is key – from special zoning overlays to tenant preferences in an ever-evolving environment – our depth has helped us avoid pitfalls as well as create opportunities.”

- Jeff Kaplan, Managing Partner


Our Philosophy

  • Concentration on highly liquid markets as the cornerstone of the investment program – more durable through cycles and less volatile
  • Narrow market focus (primarily New York City and London) provides local knowledge, enhanced market intelligence, deep-rooted relationships, and unique sourcing advantage
  • Proactive sourcing with a granular approach of targeting individual assets, owners, and lenders to create investment opportunities in accordance with high conviction themes
  • Middle market specialty - $10 to $40 million target equity investment range - deal size is less competitive and creates a large investment universe

“Our granular business plans from the outset allow us to maximize value in a repositioning without over-improving the asset for the micro location. The best way to underwrite a new investment is based on our own experience with nearby assets we own or have owned in the past.”

- Tim Yantz, Founding Partner

"Value is created in the details at the individual asset level...in the proper structuring of acquisitions, overseeing small details in the re-positioning and asset management, and ultimately in executing the disposition. Meadow's executive team is involved hands-on at each stage of every investment."
