Where Should The Smart Money Be Invested? Assessing The Macro-Economic Outlook + Demographic & Social Trends
This session offers insights into which asset classes/investment strategies offer the best mid-long-term investment potential and market downturn protection. First, we examine the macro-economic outlook at what it means for CRE (commercial real estate) and credit-related investments.
Secondly, we analyze key demographic/lifestyle trends and technological advancements that are changing the use of real estate and, ultimately, what it means for CRE investment.
Are we headed towards recession? What signals are there? When will the current cycle end? National vs. local cycles: What sectors would hold up in a down-cycle?
What macro-economic trends and fiscal policy – domestic and international – will likely have the greatest impact on CRE/credit-orientated investments in the next year?
Curtailed immigration: The impact of shortages in labor, renters, buyers on assets/markets
Ride-sharing and driverless cars: Has there been a discernable impact on retail, offices, residential communities, parking lots?
Are innovators in property (re)development to meet the changing needs of Millennials/Seniors in living, working, commerce, leisure and health-related real estate seeing dividends?
Which asset types are garnering significant investor interest based on evolving demographic and social trends?
Which asset types/markets are the ones to watch for the greatest investment potential over the next 3-7+ years, particularly when factoring in the macro-economic outlook? Which offer greater downturn protections than others?
