Renowned expert in Commercial Real Estate (CRE), Jacob Frydman is coming from over three decades of professional experience in the industry, and is regularly sought after by business executives to share insights into specifics and patterns of the CRE sector. As a consultant, he has been analyzing the market to predict the unexpected courses it might take. For the past few years, through media appearances and interviews Frydman has forecast on the inevitable rise of interest rates and their effect on the CRE market.
Frydman points out that despite these uncertainties, there is still a greater demand for prime real estate than there is a ready supply, and a study by Dr. Martha Peyton and Dr. Edward F. Pierzak of TIAA-CREF seems to back this up. “Despite moderating total return expectations,” the report’s conclusion reads, “real estate performance is expected to remain attractive compared to other asset classes and real estate should remain an important part of investors’ multi-asset class portfolios.” Jacob Frydman also cautions potential investors to choose the right options. He believes that the United States is too heavily focused on retail real estate, and the transfer of consumer traffic from brick-and-mortar stores to online retailers provides opportunities in industrial real estate, specifically distribution centers.
