A call to action: One person’s endeavor to help in Nepal

by Geoffrey Dohrmann

Those of you who have been in or around the institutional real estate investment community long enough will remember Barbara Cambon, the founder of Institutional Property Consultants. For the rest of you, IPC was one of the leading real estate consulting firms of the late 1980s and early 1990s. During that time, Barbara helped shape the landscape of the investment management community most of you are part of today. She worked with Steve Roulac and others on the development and refinement of the time-weighted return methodology many of you employ when reporting core and core-plus returns, and she worked with Bob Zerbst to publish some of the original casework supporting the inclusion of real estate in an institutional mixed-asset portfolio. To say most of us would not be employed in the kind of work we are if not for Barbara’s pioneering efforts is hardly an understatement.

Barbara is not entirely gone from the scene, however. She is still active in the leadership of NCREIF
