JLL’s announcement that it is acquiring HFF in a deal worth $2 billion would propel the combined entity to second place in the ranks of the largest brokers in the Americas for 2018. It would also cement JLL’s position as the second largest broker globally behind CBRE.
HFF is predominantly focused on the Americas and it was the fourth largest broker in this region in 2018, according to the latest RCA Top Global Investment Brokers report. JLL held the number six rank for the Americas.
The RCA rankings are based on sell-side activity of brokers. RCA clients can log into the RCA website to download their copy of the 2018 RCA Top Global Investment Brokers report and the report methodology.
