Goodwin Procter's Rob Insolia Discusses U.S. Commercial Real Estate Outlook in PERE


Goodwin Procter Managing Partner Rob Insolia was featured in the November issue of PERE (Private Equity Real Estate) as part of an industry leader roundtable discussion on commercial real estate trends and the outlook for the sector in the United States.

The PERE roundtable also included Scott Brown, managing director, CBRE Global Investors; Mark Grinis, partner, Ernst & Young; and Charles Burd, chief investment officer, Bentall Kennedy.

Topics explored in the discussion included use of real estate investments as an inflation hedge, the growing single-family rental market, the large amount of capital firms have set aside for real estate investment, “build-to-core” strategies and how new regulatory initiatives will affect the private equity real estate space.

“Our goal in 2013 is to help our clients capitalize their investment activities, maneuver them towards the capital in this continually evolving landscape and get them to a place where they can do the deals on an attractive basis,” said Insolia. “On a relative basis, I think it’s going to be a good year.”

PERE is a leading global news service for private real estate investment and finance and is a flagship publication of PEI Media Group.
