Organizational, Financial & Strategic Consulting

FPL Consulting is an advisory practice focused on helping clients achieve their strategic and financial objectives. Our functional expertise includes strategy, organizational design, M&A, valuation, governance, and transition planning. This expertise, combined with data-based analytics and our ability to build consensus, leads to successful conclusions for our clients, which include the largest institutional and publicly-owned firms as well as family-owned companies and private partnerships.

How We're Different

Industry knowledge: We focus exclusively on advising real estate and related financial services companies and have been doing so for more than 20 years. As a result, we have a deep understanding of industry dynamics and the business fundamentals that drive real estate organizations. We also have extensive industry relationships at the most senior levels.

Functional expertise: Our principals have significant experience in strategy, organizational design, M&A, valuation, governance, and transition planning. These skill sets, combined with our experiential knowledge of real estate, research-driven analytics, and practical application of human dynamics, allows us to deliver effective and actionable solutions for our clients.

Leading data resources: Our extensive industry relationships with clients and prominent trade associations give us a distinct competitive advantage in accessing non-public data. We maintain industry-leading databases that house tens of thousands data points relating to financial metrics, organizational metrics, capital flows, fund terms and conditions, organizational structures, governance structures, assets under management, and other relevant operating metrics.

Advisory mindset: Senior FPL leaders work closely with clients on each engagement. We avoid “off the shelf” solutions and customize our approach to meet the specific needs of each client.

Efficiency: Our combination of deep industry experience, functional skill sets, and leading data resources enables us to work in a cost efficient manner.
