Andrew Farkas founded Island Capital Group LLC in May 2003 and is its Managing Member, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Farkas was previously Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Insignia Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE: IFS), a global real estate services company that was merged with CB Richard Ellis in July 2003 to form the world's largest commercial real estate services company. Mr. Farkas founded Insignia in 1990 with $5 million in equity.

From 1996 through 2003, Insignia built its leading international commercial real estate services and principal investment firm, commencing with the acquisition of the New York City's Edward S. Gordon Company. By 2003, Insignia had become among the top three leading commercial real estate services firms in the world with dominant presence in the United States, the UK and France. Insignia also had operations in Madrid and Barcelona, Spain; Frankfurt, Germany; Milan and Bologna, Italy; Brussels, Belgium; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Dublin, Ireland; Tokyo, Japan; Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai, China; Bangkok, Thailand; Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai and Delhi, India; Manila, Philippines; and Mexico City, Mexico.
