The Failure of CRE Investment Loss Mitigation in the Analytics Age

More than $500 billion in CRE loans and investments are expected to be realized this year, worldwide.  That’s an astounding number.  CRE investment loss mitigation practices have not proven to be up to the task (otherwise, the losses would be a lot less, wouldn’t they?).  … More The Failure of CRE Investment Loss Mitigation in the Analytics Age

Unwinding the Complicated & Conflicted Compliance Conundrum

The regulators are after still after you.  Whether your business is being beat up by FINRA regulations, the Basel III  Accord or some other regulatory body, the desired impact is all the same – the regulators are here.  They are tired of dealing with the investment fraud complaints, the lack of reporting transparency that allows investment fraud to thrive, and they are going to take a pound of flesh. … More Unwinding the Complicated & Conflicted Compliance Conundrum

The Market Test: Why Capital Financing Success is so Elusive

The Challenge of Launching Global CRE Lending

The problem is information.  Believe it or not our market analysis has found that census-taking outside the U.S. is spotty and non-existent in many parts of the world.  There are countries that have limited resources so they have incomplete information compared to what we enjoy here in the U.S. and there are countries, that for the purposes of political expediency, don’t want anyone to know the information.  In either case, they are really hurting themselves.   … More The Challenge of Launching Global CRE Lending
