Capital One Banker Says Technology Having Profound Impact on Real Estate

The stock performance of retail REITs has come under pressure in part due to the impact of e-commerce competition.

Greg Steele, managing director at Capital One, joined Nareit for a video interview at REITworld 2017.

According to Steele, one of the more surprising developments in real estate capital markets this year has been the impact of technology on real estate. The stock performance and capital raising of retail REITs have come under pressure this year, in part due to the impact of e-commerce.
