May 2 2012 | 7:35am ET

KeyPoint Capital, a Dallas-based opportunistic hedge fund specializing in real estate-related equity securities, has hired Ben Liss as an analyst.

Liss comes to KeyPoint from Cantor Fitzgerald & Co. in New York, where he was instrumental in building out a lodging investment banking practice. Prior to Cantor, Ben was an associate at JF Capital Advisors, a lodging-focused advisory and investment firm, where he built portfolio projections and performed asset level due diligence for hotel acquisitions. 
 
KeyPoint portfolio manager Rod Hinze said in a statement: “We are confident that Ben’s extensive, ground-level diligence in the real estate sector—combined with his financial acumen—will contribute to KeyPoint’s success going forward, and is a reflection of our growth and potential in the years ahead.”   

KeyPoint Capital, with approximately $39 million AUM, was up about 4.5%, after fees, at the end of March 2012.
