Another top speaker from the event, Norman Sturner, CEO of Murray Hill Properties offers this advice to attendees:
“My Personal recipe for owning Manhattan properties: Mix Equal Parts of A; B; & C and Bake. A) There is too little product in Manhattan being chased by too much equity capital from all over the world. B) There is an abundance of low, long term fixed interest rates available, to ensure stability from future cycles. C) There is little risk that new construction costs will recede in the near future that will price compete with existing properties. Wait three-seven years and enjoy.”
The Private Equite Summit will focus on the hottest industry topics, including why foreign investors are investing in U.S. classes, private equity hotel investment strategies, and driving deal flow.
Event attendees will hear from over 40 top experts through innovative discussions and unique panels. Aside from the learning experience offered by the event, attendees will also enjoy extensive networking opportunities.
