If you are looking to match transformations similar to Cinema 4D’s Transfer tool, Houdini also has this ability tucked away in the parameters pane. Not sure when this was introduced but it quickly allows you to match one object’s transformations to another one.
I completely missed this or just never noticed them. Right next to the transform parameters on your geometry node, you will see on the right side some icons. Just click on one of them, select you target geometry and you are good to go.
