Strategic Real Estate Investment Conference to Explore Portfolio Diversification

This week’s Strategic Real Estate Investment Conference, produced by National Real Estate Investor, REP., Trusts & Estates and the newly launched, will bring together more than 150 wealth management and commercial real estate professionals to discuss best practices and tactics for investing in property.

The conference will take place on June 7 at 1290 Sixth Avenue in New York City. It will run all day, including an opening breakfast, and conclude with a networking reception.

The sessions will feature a mix of investment professionals and wealth advisors and explore topics including family office real estate, financial advisors’ views on real estate, wealth transfer strategies and alternative investments.

In addition, the conference will include a CEO panel featuring Stuart Boesky, CEO of Pembrook Group; Alex Hurst, founder of Palatine Capital Partners; Michael Katz, CO-CEO of Sterling American Property Inc.; Nicholas Schorsch, CEO of American Realty Capital and Arthur Mirante II, principal and tri-state president of Avison Young.

A Family Office panel, meanwhile, will include Dan Daniels, partner, Wiggen and Dana’s private client services department; Preston Tasao, sole management member of Metcircle Networking LLC; Alex Hurst, founder, Palatine Capital Partners; Paul Comstock, chairman, Paul Comstock Partners and Angelo J. Robles, founder & CEO of the Family Office Association.

“We’re looking at a time when it's an opportunity to invest in this market,” says Jonathan A. Schein, practice leader for NREI. “We’re looking for all kinds of different constituencies to invest in commercial real estate. … “We’re talking about sectors, whether it’s office, retail, industrial, hotels or multifamily. We’re looking at hotter markets and slower markets. We’re looking at distressed assets and distressed debt.”

On the wealth management side, financial advisors, asset managers, registered representatives and heads of family office are all among the registrants speaking and participating at the conference.

“They’re the ones investing in what owners, developers and lenders are putting up across the country,” Schein says. “No one has been able to put these two constituencies together in one networking forum.”
