3 Key Takeaways From the IMN Non-Traded REIT Conference

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014 and is filed under Uncategorized

I was fortunate to attend the IMN Non-Traded REIT Conference in New York City, New York June 26-27th.

Here are my 3 key takeaways from the conference.

1.  Multi-Product Distribution Success

The YTD capital raise in Non-Traded REITs are on track to meet or possibly exceed the record capital raise set in 2013.  At the same time, sales are increasingly more concentrated among product sponsors.  The barriers to entry for new product sponsors have never been higher.  The high cost of distribution is likely the first and highest barrier to entry.

The multi-product distribution platform, made popular by the RCS model, is no longer the exception to the rule.  Many of the top selling products are distributed through a multi-product distribution platform.

2.  Pending Regulatory Changes Coming Soon

The second barrier to entry is pending regulatory changes, particularly changes to client account statements.  The industry has seen different iterations of this change from FINRA in the last several years.  The comment period on the latest proposal issued as FINRA NTM 14-14 ended on May 23rd.

Many expect a final rule from FINRA in the next 30 days.  Many prospective product sponsors are reluctant today to structure a product that doesn’t fit in tomorrow’s regulatory scheme.

3.  The Real Estate Cycle Is Different

I moderated a panel of chief real estate investment officers that discussed the current real estate cycle.  All of them agreed that this cycle is different from previous cycles in that its driven more by economic and financial forces rather than manufacturing forces.

Wide yields between cap rates and the 10 year treasury continue to attract capital in real estate.  Recent data suggests the markets for hotels and office buildings in most major MSAs are still recovering, while markets for apartments in those most areas has peaked.

I would welcome comments and further discussion.  Feel free to reach out at scott@factright.com.
