CA South successfully launched its first dedicated blind pool fund in early 2019 and tapped Stephen to lead its newly formed investment management division. Stephen’s roots in real estate development run deep, as he began in the industry just after graduating from the University of Southern California in 2003. Stephen began working for Conquest Student Housing, a boutique real estate development firm with over $150M in student housing projects. After Conquest divested of its properties, Mr. Epstein moved back to San Francisco to work for another student housing developer in Berkeley, California, Panoramic Interests.

A year later, Mr. Epstein took a position as Acquisition Analyst with Grosvenor Group Limited, the Duke of Westminster’s global private equity real estate fund.
