Sherman: “I had multiple conversations with investors saying they had money to get deals done in last three to four months, but they effectively did nothing.”
SAN DIEGO—Just like home buyers look to level up, we’re also seeing a bit more fluidity in typically middle-market groups seeking more institutional deals and vice versa, Avison Young’s principal, capital-markets group, Peter Sherman tells GlobeSt.com. Sherman, who is based in Los Angeles, recently attended NMHC’s Conference and Annual Meeting here. We chatted with him about his takeaways and the major themes running through the conference.
GlobeSt.com: What stood out for you at the NMHC Conference or Annual Meeting?
Sherman: It was an absolutely tremendous turnout. Someone had mentioned the actual numbers by comparison, but it was more than 6,000 people. I’ve been going to these conferences for a number of years, both before the downturn and afterward, and this was one of the largest turnouts I’ve ever seen. It certainly speaks to a very healthy and optimistic marketplace.Go Back
I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
