NEW YORK, November 1, 2021 -- Mizuho Americas today announced the hiring of Vikram Malhotra as Managing Director, Senior Equity Research Analyst and Co-Head of US REITs research alongside Haendel St. Juste, Managing Director, Senior Equity Research Analyst.
REITs is a focus sector for Mizuho globally and includes James Esposito, Managing Director, Head of US REITs trading, based in New York, and Japan REITs analyst, Yosuke Ohata, who ranked third in the 2021 Nikkei Veritas survey. Malhotra will be based in New York and report to Managing Director and Head of US Equity Research, Susan Gilbertson.
“The REIT market continues to evolve with growth in e-commerce, cloud computing and health care,” said Gilbertson. “COVID and the need to work from home accelerated the growth in distributed workforces, and has led to changes in housing preferences and requirements for office space. Malhotra’s wide-ranging expertise across REITs and his outstanding track record of data-based, fundamental research in this dynamic sector should deliver the alpha-generating insights that our clients have come to expect.”
Malhotra joins Mizuho from Morgan Stanley where he most recently served as Executive Director and the lead Senior REITs Analyst covering healthcare, triple net, office, industrials and real estate brokers. He began his career as an appraiser with commercial real estate brokerage Colliers International, and subsequently held investment due diligence and advisory roles at Jones Lang LaSalle.
Malhotra holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Management from Purdue University and an MBA from the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business.
