(Breakfast Workshop) Issuing Bonds in Israel 

During the last few years, prominent US based real estate owners are sourcing a new form of finance in Israel – unsecured corporate level bonds. It’s a creative concept, with benefits for both sides, and is also attractive for US listed Real Estate companies and trusts. As of today, more than 30 US based companies had issued over $6.5bn in the Israeli capital market. Those bonds are traded in between 2% and 7% yield – much more attractive compared to mezzanine or equity partners – who compete on the same level at the capital stack. Click here to view more

Rethinking Retail: Falling Knife vs. Golden Opportunity

Retail is in a state of upheaval nationally, and New York City retail is not immune to the forces that are disrupting consumer behavior and causing an evolution in the winners and losers of street retail today and in the future. How do retailers big and small view NYC’s attractiveness, and what are the key factors that would cause them to expand further or possible reduce the number of stores? Which submarkets are they looking at? And how are retailers and retail space operators innovating to stay relevant today?

Battlefield Work: The Future of Office, and the Office of the Future

Recently, the NYC office market saw its first dip since the Great Recession, sparking fears that the tide that has lifted all boats may begin to ebb. How are demand and supply for office space affecting investment and development opportunities in office? In what ways are flexible office arrangements propping up or undermining the office leasing market? If a recession hits the economy, will highly amenitized office space still be a major selling point to attract and retain talent? Who wins and who loses, if the office leasing market softens significantly?
