Sharing Insights from the West Coast

Sharing Insights from the West Coast

 

Our CEO and President, Freddy Russian was pleased to attend the 2016 Private Equity Real Estate (PERE) Global Forum held in the West Coast last week.  The premier conference brought together key players from the private equity real estate sector in addition to investment executives from various regions in the global environment with a notorious presence from Asia and Europe. 

During the two-day event, there were lengthy discussions about current trends on what is driving the Private Equity Real Estate.  Mr. Russian got the opportunity to connect and share great insights while learning on how real estate is driving the world’s markets and what investors are seeking. 

Real Estate remains a core investment strategy across the board although it remains a relatively small part of institutional portfolios.  Given the volatility of the equities market, real estate may be up to a good compelling alternative as it would potentially generate low double digit returns. 

The forum turned out to be a great success.  Mr. Russian gained a wealth of information from the best minds in the industry and was able to connect and make new acquaintances.  He remains positive in relation to the real estate in the US as this sector is becoming more enticing to the investor to invest capital despite what is happening globally.  He truly believes that the real estate industry offers attractive opportunities in the near term.
