January 06, 2020

On Tuesday, January 7, Tom Latzke, CAIA will be speaking at Opal Group’s Public Funds Summit 2020 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Tom will be moderating a panel entitled, “Real Estate Investing: Opportunistic vs. Value Added vs. Core vs. Debt,” which will seek to explore several topics regarding the current landscape for real estate. including:

  • Where is the greatest opportunity or threat? What should a plan sponsor do to take advantage of this insight?
  • Where are we in the real estate cycle?
  • Where can upside potential be found?
  • What are the biggest risks facing investors?
  • U.S. versus non-U.S. real estate investing
  • Technology and the commercial real estate landscape
  • Potential effects of a new administration on commercial real estate

The 2020 Summit will specifically address funding concerns for public pensions — especially as plans seek alternatives to traditional investing to meet pension obligations — in addition to the legal, regulatory, and educational issues facing plan sponsors and their fiduciaries.

Opal Group’s Public Funds Summit offers members of the public sector an opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from other delegates, money managers, and consultants. For more information, please visit the event webpage.
