Significant shifts in the commercial real estate industry are creating challenges and opportunities for investors, with implications for deal flow, valuations, large fund dominance in fundraising, and the availability and cost of capital. Where are we headed from here?

Marks Paneth is proud to sponsor the 18th Annual Winter Forum on Real Estate Opportunity & Private Fund Investing, where the issues surrounding the ongoing shifts in commercial real estate will be explored by top industry leaders. The Winter Forum will be held January 19 – 21, 2022, at the Montage Resort & Spa, Laguna Beach, CA.

Marks Paneth Managing Partner Abe Schlisselfeld, CPA, EA, will lead the panel discussion on “Opportunity Zones, Urban Investments & Re-Emerging Local Markets” at the Winter Forum. A nationally recognized expert on the Qualified Opportunity Zones program created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, Schlisselfeld has been honored as one of 2020’s “Top 25 Opportunity Zone Influencers” in the Tax Specialist category by Opportunity Zone Magazine. He has advised commercial and residential real estate owners, management firms and real estate investment trusts (REITs) on all facets of accounting and taxation.

The Winter Forum, the largest event of its kind on the West Coast, will tackle many issues that are impacting real estate investors today, such as:

  • Geopolitical risk, tax reform and other industry disruptors that have the potential to cause major change across asset classes
  • Investment opportunities on the horizon that will replace those that are receding, along with innovative investment strategies that are already benefiting early adopters
  • Qualified Opportunity Zones. How much capital is being raised for QOZ funds and how much has been deployed? What are QOZ funds investing in, and where?
  • Long-term impacts of the pandemic on the real estate industry, including what markets are primed to bounce back quickest and strongest, and evolving opportunities in urban areas as many people move to less populated areas.
