Meet Jordan Caspari, Founder of Soma Capital
I’m Jordan, a passionate real estate entrepreneur and the driving force behind Soma Capital.
Prior to launching Soma Capital in 2014, I served as Vice President in the San Francisco office of Partners Group, a global investment platform with assets exceeding $80 billion. There, I sat on the investment committee managing a substantial $450 million US real estate fund leading strategic portfolio and fund-level recapitalizations.
Before joining Partners Group, I worked with Liquid Realty Partners, a $2 billion private equity manager, where I specialized in secondary acquisitions. My professional journey began in Toronto, where I worked as an Investment Analyst with Oxford Properties Group / OMERS Pension underwriting acquisitions across the United States.
In 2012, a career highlight was being recognized as one of the “Top 45 Under 40” in the United States by Real Estate Forum, an accolade that marked my hard work and impact in the industry.
Experience is the best teacher, but education kickstarts the journey. I am a proud alumnus of Queen’s University in Canada, holding a B.A. in Philosophy. I furthered my expertise with a Master’s in Real Estate Development from Columbia University. This blend of philosophical inquiry and technical knowledge has been pivotal in shaping my questions, vision and approach to real estate.
Husband and father of three has always been my greatest accomplishment. As a Bay Area native, I embrace the outdoor lifestyle and when not at work, I can be found snowboarding in Lake Tahoe, mountain biking in the Orinda hills, or kite surfing in the Bay. These activities are not just pastimes; they are a source of inspiration and rejuvenation.
Beyond my career, I am proudly involved in community work. Most recently, I served on the board of the Presidio YMCA, contributing to corporate leadership and fundraising initiatives.
