JANUARY ISSUE: Hiring & Compensation–Rewarding Talent
- Jan 30, 2015
As 2014 comes to a close, three overarching trends have emerged that will continue to dominate commercial real estate and influence senior leadership hiring in 2015. They are:
■ Abundant equity capital to invest, which is also triggering significantly more activity in global debt markets—a possible warning sign that the current expansion cycle is at risk of overheating;
■ Increased focus on leadership in the U.S., with a significant amount of turnover at the top of REIT organizational charts;
■ Growing interest in opportunistic investing in southern European markets hardest hit during the global downturn—first Spain, now Italy and even Greece.
