Liss comes to KeyPoint from Cantor Fitzgerald & Co. in New York, where he was instrumental in building out a lodging investment banking practice.

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.
