Former Ares Exec Joins Accordant to Help Distribute Interval Index Fund

Dean Borgh

Dean Borgh joined Accordant Investments LLC as executive director for national accounts. Borgh is responsible for expanding the distribution of Accordant Investments’ products in the private wealth channel. He joins Accordant from Ares Wealth Management Solutions, where he was a principal with the broker-dealer affiliate of global alternative investments manager Ares Management Corporation.

“We are excited to add another executive to the Accordant team to assist in the broad distribution of our first-to-market real estate index interval fund and other purpose-built investment solutions,” said Greg Stark, Accordant chief executive officer.

“Dean brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to help us continue addressing the needs of advisers and private wealth investors. As investors seek greater diversification in their portfolio, they should think of private real estate as a ‘Goldilocks’ alternative; it has earnings growth and dividend yield characteristics of stocks and bonds, yet the low correlation benefits investors seek in an alternative asset class,” added Stark.

Borgh brings significant industry experience to Accordant, having worked as a FINRA-registered professional for nearly 26 years. He joined Ares in 2021 following its acquisition of Black Creek Group, which Borgh joined in 2019 and where he served as senior vice president of strategic accounts. He has also held senior management positions at Starwood Capital and W.P. Carey, where he developed industry relationships and built large distribution groups focused on the private wealth channel.

Borgh holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota in political science and a Juris Doctor from Mitchell Hamline School of Law. He holds FINRA Series 6, 7, 24, and 63 licenses.

Accordant is a registered investment adviser headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz., that aims to bring the advantages of institutional core real estate to the private wealth market. Accordant focuses on both active and passive investment strategies and leverages its relationships within the real estate industry to create truly diversified portfolio offerings in easy-to-use structures.
