Executive Vice President and Head of Capital Markets Jeff Holland, CFA, will participate on the “Assessing the Next Generation of Product” panel. Participants will examine four daily Net Asset Value products and discuss the future of Non-Traded REITs.
Chief Investment Strategist Indraneel Karlekar, Ph.D., will speak on the “Where the Smart Money Should Go” panel, looking at how different real estate asset classes will fare in the next 12 to18 months.
