Cordier will be responsible for the sourcing, underwriting and execution of Madison’s equity transactions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and parts of Southern Europe.
He will also deal with the investments for the firm’s newest fund, Madison International Real Estate Liquidity Fund VI, which has nearly $1.4 billion of commitments globally.
Having joined the firm in 2011, he is based in Frankfurt and liaises closely with the London and New York offices.
Prior to his time at Madison, he spent four years with Deutsche Bank’s European commercial real estate group, carrying out office and retail transactions throughout Europe.
Ronald Dickerman, president of Madison International Realty, said: “Matthias has significant experience and a proven track record in sourcing, structuring, and closing transactions to provide joint venture equity and replace existing capital partners in Class A real estate transactions.”
He added: “His in-depth understanding of the European real estate market has been invaluable as we seek to strengthen our growing presence in German speaking and Southern European real estate markets.”
