Grow Your Clients’ Wealth With Private Real Estate
According to Preqin, the leading provider of alternative assets data, U.S. real estate funds raised a record $111 billion in equity in 2021, an increase of 35% from 2020 and 16% more than 2019. More investors are allocating to private real estate than ever before, likely because the asset class is poised to rally throughout 2022 while inflation rises, stocks experience continued volatility, and bond returns decrease.
Origin Investments has been laser-focused on private real estate investing for fifteen years. On this webinar, Origin Investments Co-CEO David Scherer will discuss the ways private real estate benefits an investor’s portfolio and why an increasing number of RIAs are allocating to private real estate. Plus, he’ll provide an overview of the diversified multifamily real estate funds that Origin offers to investors.
