Ever wonder why one non-traded REIT lists and another opts to merge? The Direct Investment industry has witnessed several exchange listings, multiple mergers, and large property sales this year, but why does one option work over another?

Thanks to REISA and SNL, you can uncover the answer to this question.

On August 12, 2014, REISA and SNL hosted a complimentary webinar titled Non-Traded REITS: Positioning for an Exit.

The event was moderated by Jason Lail, Manager of Real Estate Research for SNL.

Panelists included Kevin Gannon, Managing Director of Robert A. Stanger & Co., Brian Jones, President – Investment Banking of RC Advisory Services, and Kevin Shields, Chairman and CEO of Griffin Capital Group.

Jones summed up what’s driving the record capital raising efforts this year and last.

Shields shared thoughts on what factors influence a decision to list or merge.
