    Career FAQ's

    What is the role of the asset manager?

    Affordable housing asset managers are responsible for the long-term stewardship of a portfolio of multifamily properties. Those employed by nonprofits and for-profit owners of affordable housing ensure that their organizations’ performance and mission goals are achieved. Their work typically intersects with property management, resident services and financial management departments. Asset managers who work for lenders, investors, syndicators and housing finance agencies monitor the performance of the properties these organizations finance and invest in.

    No matter which type of setting, the job entails monitoring for financial performance, occupancy, physical conditions and compliance of properties. Job titles include asset manager coordinator or analyst, asset manager, senior asset manager, portfolio manager and director of asset management.

    The CHAM 2020 survey asked how asset managers’ time was spent in a typical year. About 45% of their time is on three main activities: overseeing property management and resident services; compliance and performance analysis; and managing owner’s risks and opportunities. The rest of their time is split up among multiple types of activities, such as crisis management; repositionings and refinancings; partner and funder reporting; interfacing with development; and capital and green planning. 

    How do I enter the asset management field?  

    Employers are looking for people with experience in property management, real estate development, construction management and/or financial management. Experience and credentials in affordable housing is a plus. A bachelor’s degree in business management, business administration, accounting, finance or real estate is typically expected along with strong analytical skills, excellent communication skills, proficiency in Excel and working knowledge of housing programs.
