2013-2014 NAREIM YEAR IN REVIEW
‚ÄúThe dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. the occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise‚Äîwith the occasion. as our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew.‚Äù
‚Äì President Lincoln
Although the current real estate investment management environment is certainly not as dire as what Mr. Lincoln faced in the middle of the American Civil War, the call for leaders to rise to the challenges and opportunities of the future are no less present. Today‚Äôs real estate leader faces a cross-current of pressures and challenges. Capital, though plentiful and diverse, comes with more strings attached, regulations continue to confuse and confound, changing demographic pressures are influencing the future of assets purchased today while new technology and business plans continue to make things interesting.
