Global REIT Summit 2014: Listed, Non-Traded and Private REITs

October 1 2014

Essex House New York, NY

Following its successful debut in New York last fall, highlighted by the honor of ringing the Nasdaq Closing Bell, iGlobal Forum is pleased to present our Global REIT Summit 2014: Listed, Non-Traded & Private REITs!  This year’s Summit will be held on Wednesday, October 1st, 2014 in New York City.  Currently valued at over a trillion dollars, the REIT marketplace continues to gain momentum, attracting retail and institutional investors alike with consistently high after-tax returns, instant liquidity, and surprising resiliency in the face of market volatility.  This outperformance is expected to continue as the Fed appears reluctant to risk choking off the nascent economic recovery by prematurely raising interest rates. And while the level of REIT IPOs, liquidity events and mergers probably won’t match the records set in 2013, capital market transactions continue strong, and recent favorable rulings on REIT conversions have increased activity in non-traditional and specialty sectors such as data warehouses, outdoor advertising, cell phone towers, telecommunications networks, and even solar farms. The upcoming Global REIT Summit 2014: Listed, Non-Traded & Private REITs will provide the perfect platform to network and connect with REIT executives, private equity investors, hedge funds, investment bankers, lenders, broker-dealers, and asset managers.

September 23 2014

Millennium Hotel London Mayfair London, UK

iGlobal Forum is pleased to announce the 2nd Real Estate Private Equity Summit: Europe, which will take place on 23rd September in London.

The 2nd Real Estate Private Equity Summit: Europe will offer an in-depth understanding into the trends that are affecting pricing, the role that leverage should play in your real estate investments, and in which regions and asset classes you will find the best risk-adjusted returns.
