Property expert, Jacob Frydman notes the similarities between the US retail property market landscape in 2016 and that of 2015, with a number of key aspects for investors to be aware of. U.S. retailers seem to be expanding internationally at a faster pace than in recent years; however, while they are gaining “brick-and-mortar” locations abroad, the reverse does not hold true, as the American retail market is often too expensive and competitive for international retailers to do well. Among American-owned companies, the physical retail market is much more closely tied to how well they have managed to attract buyers in a virtual space.
Over his 30-year career, Jacob Frydman made a lasting impression with the property investment industry. Through his vast experience in structuring, financing, and executing highly complex real estate transactions, he has acquired over five million square feet of American property and has participated in investments valued at over $2 billion. He often speaks at Columbia University and in the Master’s Lecturer series at New York Law School, discussing business, law, and ethical elements of real estate management to aspiring students. Frydman is an avid philanthropist, who cares greatly for his Jewish community, and supports many other charitable committees, including The Chabad of Dutchess County and The Brem Foundation, which focuses on the eradication of breast cancer among women and men in the Washington DC metropolitan area.
