MMM’s Peurach Selected to Join IPA Rising Leaders Council


Atlanta (June 2020) – Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP Partner Matt Peurach has been selected to serve on the Institute for Portfolio Alternatives Rising Leaders Council. The Council was created under the direction of IPA’s Board of Directors to recognize emerging leaders by providing a unique opportunity to serve the industry.

IPA describes members of the group as industry ambassadors, who truly exemplify the future of the Portfolio Diversifying Investments industry. Peurach will serve a two-year term with the inaugural group.

“Each Council Member exemplifies excellence and shares a deep commitment to our mission to advance portfolio diversification, and drive transparency and innovation in the marketplace,” the announcement said. “Over the next two years, this prestigious and dedicated group will spearhead a number of strategic education and outreach initiatives on behalf of the IPA.”

Peurach, who chairs the firm’s Opportunity Zones Practice, is also a partner in the Corporate, Investment Funds, Real Estate Capital Markets and Tax practices. He advises clients on structuring private equity funds predominately focused on real estate investments. Peurach also advises clients with respect to tax issues associated with fund formation, real estate and other corporate transactions, including qualified opportunity fund investments in qualified opportunity zones, like-kind exchanges under Section 1031, affordable housing/low income housing tax credits, historic tax credits, energy credits, and mergers and acquisitions of corporate and flow-through entities.

“I’m thrilled to have been selected to be a part of this distinguished group. I have great respect for the IPA mission and am excited about this opportunity to help spearhead strategic initiatives for the group,” Peurach said. “I’m also looking forward to the opportunity to speak and present at industry conferences and events.” He also speaks regularly at industry conferences including those hosted by MMM, Bisnow and other organizations.
