OUR TEAM

Our founders met early in their Wall Street careers and reunited in 2016 to form Acuity Partners, with the goal of creating a distinctive and responsive investment platform for our clients. We believe our 60+ years of collective experience provides us with the wisdom to create compelling opportunities for our investors.

Bob Spiegel
CEO
Bob spent the first 25 years of his career in capital markets and venture capital. He and his teams participated in over 100 financings with total assets raised of over $10 billion. Bob began his career at Drexel Burnham Lambert and went on to found and run several private investment banking and venture firms. His team was responsible for all aspects of the company building process including deal flow, due diligence, financing, board level advising, business development, recruiting, M/A activities and systems implementation.

In the past five years Bob and his team have leveraged their years of business and operating experience, and shifted their focus to Commercial Real Estate. They have found that investing in multi-family properties has the desired blend of preservation of capital, current cash flow, capital appreciation and tax efficient investing. Bob and his joint venture partners own over 3,000 units across the Southeast and Midwest.

Bob is a graduate of Syracuse University and proud father of 3 grown children. He currently resides and works in New York City, where he is actively involved in UJA and other philanthropic endeavors and is an active patron of Syracuse University Athletics.
