Greystone adds an MD from Deutsche Bank

The New York-based mortgage lender has made its latest senior hire from the German investment bank.

Nikhil Kanodia has joined Greystone, a New York-based real estate debt group, as a managing director. He will focus on managing client relationships with various real estate owners, originating new loans and identifying new initiatives in the marketplace, according to a statement from Greystone. Kanodia will report to Mordecai Rosenberg, another managing director in the New York office.

Kanodia joins Greystone from Deutsche Bank's Real Estate, Gaming, Lodging & Leisure Investment Banking Group, where he spent 10 years in a client-facing role and executing capital market and M&A transactions totaling more than $40 billion.

“Nikhil's deep experience in providing best-in-class advisory services to real estate clients and his expertise in structuring capital markets transactions will be an incredible and immediate asset to Greystone and to our clients, as we continue to expand our debt, equity, and advisory services for property owners,” said Rosenberg.

Greystone provides mortgage finance solutions across multiple platforms, including FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, USDA, CMBS, bridge, mezzanine and other proprietary loan programs. The firm has three main business lines: mortgage finance, healthcare and real estate. When it comes to mortgage lending, the firm mostly focused on multifamily and healthcare real estate lending. Greystone is headquartered in New York and has offices across the US.
