Michael Moran (BA 1988), Managing Director at Allstate Investments, Speaks to Real Estate Club

Posted By Maria-Elena Svigos, Blue Vista Capital Management, Tuesday, February 19, 2019


Michael Moran, Managing Director and Vice President of Private Real Estate at Allstate Investments joined the Real Estate Club last Thursday to share his experience in the private equity and debt sectors. Mr. Moran is in charge of managing Allstate’s $10 billion commercial real estate investment portfolio where he is responsible for all aspects of acquisitions and portfolio management for the corporation’s commercial mortgage loan origination program and expansive equity investment activities.


Michael graduated from UW-Madison in 1988 with a BS in Real Estate and Finance. After graduation, he began his career at Arthur Andersen and later joined Duff and Phelps. Michael began his career at Allstate in 1996 as an analyst, and has since assumed positions as CMBS Portfolio Manager, Real Estate Investment Portfolio Manager and now, the Head of Real Estate.


Mr. Moran discussed Allstate’s investment process, why the process matters to insurance companies, and where real estate investment specifically fit in the equation. He discussed their total capital allocation equation, which is made up of equity and fixed income, and geographically, where Allstate is looking to invest today. Mr. Moran ended his presentation by highlighting some recent deals that Allstate has done in Boston, San Diego, and Chicago, across all property types. He encouraged students to develop the connections they create within the real estate program because they will run into Badgers throughout their whole career!


Students of the Real Estate Club enjoyed having Mr. Moran back in Madison to share his experiences and insights into the industry. The Club’s next meeting will be March 7th at the Pyle Center.
