We are excited to announce the dates for our 13th Annual Western Non-Traded REIT & Retail Alternative Investment Symposium: December 6-7, Dana Point, CA.
To say that there is much to discuss is quite the understatement.
The retail alternative investment industry, Non-Traded REITs and BDCs in particular, have posted strong returns over recent years. However, with regulatory headwinds, the industry has not been without its challenges and it continues to evolve at a dynamic rate.
The Department of Labor’s (DOLs) Fiduciary Rule and NASAAs consideration of concentration limits add to the challenges the industry faces on the distribution side. What are the implementation challenges of the Fiduciary Rule for Independent Broker/Dealers (IBDs) and how can they be overcome? What is the anticipated impact of concentration limits as they currently stand on the industry?
What has been the impact of FINRAs Regulatory Notice 15-02 since it became effective earlier this year? What post-FRN 15-02 structures are working? How are product sponsors and IBDs addressing new requirements in all facets of their business? How can they work better together to overcome challenges in this new environment?
Against this backdrop of change, another private equity giant has entered the Non-Traded REIT market. What are the implications of this for the current status quo? Will we see more such firms enter? Are wire-houses finally going to make a determined bid to enter this market sector?
What does all of this ultimately mean for product sponsors, IBDs/RIAs and retail investors? What should industry stakeholders now be doing to prepare?
Join industry heads December 6-7 in Dana Point as we discuss these critical issues and others.
