Presented by Rick Brink, CFAArtem DergunovMarshall GlickPeter Gordon

Real estate is the original asset: a distinct combination of investment potential and utility for businesses and households. That’s why the COVID-19 pandemic, and its impact on inflation and interest rates, had remarkable effects on the market. Home prices soared, hotels and shopping malls emptied, and office buildings faced a cloudy future.

As the economy and markets adapt to a reshaped landscape, how should investors approach the commercial real estate arena?


Topics Covered

  1. Explore what’s behind the market’s current state, from multifamily homes to retail spaces to the changing tide faced by office spaces, and how this will play out.

  2. Assess the road ahead through diverse investment lenses, evaluating patterns of opportunity and risk across private debt, public debt and REITs.

  3. Scan the horizon for possible future states: How will commercial real estate segments evolve, and will new ones emerge?
