About The Conference

iGlobal Forum, in partnership with EisnerAmper, is pleased to present the Global Leaders in Real Estate Summit to be held on September 27-28, 2017 in New York City. The Summit will provide deal-sourcing and thought leadership on a global scale in an exclusive upscale setting connecting leading international asset managers and investors. With an all-star line-up of top dealmakers, key players in the private and public equity markets, and global investors, 30+ distinguished speakers will share insights on the latest trends and forecasts in the world of trade, real estate investment, development, and finance. Leaders in the industry will share their keen perspectives on identifying viable investment opportunities across sectors, and investment structures still providing optimal yield. These distinguished professionals will examine top-level approaches for returns in infrastructure, retail, residential, office, hospitality, and mixed-use developments. Each session will offer an in-depth analysis by industry trailblazers of how external factors are impacting that sector, and insights on continuing to find a return. As global investors need to look outside traditional markets to find institutional level returns, we will discuss emerging infrastructure investment strategies providing long-term capital investment opportunities, indirect returns, and extensive portfolio diversification, led by the innovators forging the path toward P3s. The Summit will focus on the industry climate and provide an outlook through exclusive featured keynote fireside chats, interviews, panel discussions, in-depth workshops, and direct one-on-one networking meetings in a two day invitation-only setting, and provide a global look into the value of cross-cultural relationships and business interests.

5:00 pm - CHAIRPERSON’S SUMMARY & NETWORKING RECEPTION
6:30 pm - PRIVATE DINNER: BY INVITATION ONLY

Hosted by EisnerAmper & Bryan Cave

How does the psychology of emotion inform high-level real estate investing? In this engaging conversation, David Gilbert will interview Denise Shull of The ReThink Group – known as the “real-life Wendy Rhoades from BILLIONS” -  on her radical approach to evaluating risk. Ms. Shull, author of Market Mind Games, is a performance coach who helps investors, portfolio managers, and Olympic athletes rethink the value of emotion in their decision-making. Drawing on Mr. Gilbert's industry experience and Ms. Shull’s insights from the world of cutting-edge psychological research, this discussion will dig deep, deconstructing confidence, intuition, and conviction in uncertain markets.

  • Opportunities across investment types and structures – focus on: separate accounts, direct investments, closed-end vs. open-end funds
  • Underwriting criteria investors use for choosing their investment: total return vs. income
  • Discover if there is a potential shift from class A to class B properties, and if the focus will move from commercial to residential real estate
  • Potential opportunities in niche sectors and the new interest in student housing vs. luxury housing
  • Understanding which countries are investing in the US and expectations on returns – comparing the needs of Chinese investors vs. the recent influx from Latin America

PRE-SUMMIT WORKSHOP B:

FINDING YIELD IN NON-CORE REAL ESTATE ASSETS AND ANCILLARY STRATEGIES

Wednesday September 27, 2017 | 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

As returns stall in primary markets and core assets with prices for acquisitions at all-time highs, both domestic and international investors are moving toward opportunities in niche areas to find yield. This workshop will discuss opportunities providing the best returns in areas outside of the traditional sectors, their growth prospects, and what institutional investors expect in these areas in the current economic climate. You will leave with new contacts and strategies for finding success in each of these sectors.

  • Analyze opportunities in several emerging niche property sectors: MOBs, self-storage, student housing, senior living, data storage, single-family housing, manufactured housing, etc. 
  • Secondary/Tertiary“story” markets with growth prospects of their own providing unexpected returns
  • Playing the capital stack in search of yield; deploying passive capital as bridge, mezzanine loans & preferred equity
  • Engineering yield through ground leases
