David Bitner

Global Head of Capital Markets Insights • United States


David Bitner is Head of Americas Capital Markets Research at Cushman & Wakefield. His research focuses on how macroeconomic trends, real estate fundamentals and dynamics in the broader capital markets interact to shape commercial real estate risks and opportunities for investors. David works closely with Cushman & Wakefield capital markets professionals and clients to further the firm’s goal of promoting thought leadership within the commercial real estate niche. David’s responsibilities include producing capital markets thought leadership content, and directing a program of market presentations, written analysis, surveys, forecasts, and data collection that will support the capital markets business and advance the strategic plan in Americas Research.

Prior to joining Cushman & Wakefield, David was an investment professional at Makena Capital, a leading endowment-style investment manager located in Palo Alto. At Makena he worked closely with the Global Investment Strategist to develop the fund’s views on macroeconomic and market developments across asset classes and geographies, and subsequently translated these into investment-worthy strategies. In this role, he researched, developed, and produced a wide range of white papers, presentations and investor letters for internal and external clients, including some of the largest sovereign wealth funds.

David began his career as a corporate finance and restructuring investment banker at Bank of America, Merrill Lynch in New York.
