On Thursday, May 28th, Matt Argersinger, Lead Advisor at Millionacres, the real estate arm of The Motley Fool, and Ian Formigle, Chief Investment Officer at CrowdStreet, co-hosted a live investor roundtable with three investors as they discussed their personal investing strategies given the current state of the economy.
Investors John Keeling, Vipanj Patel, and Norm Witt came together and to share:
- How the current climate has impacted their approach to investing
- How they’ve built their commercial real estate portfolios
- What investing opportunities they think will come in the wake of COVID-19
As John pointed out, there are a lot of red flags in the short term, but his best investments have come out of periods of uncertainty. Vipanj agreed, adding that “times of dislocation are what create the greatest opportunities.” Norm said he’s cautiously optimistic and is watching to see how different sectors and asset classes– such as grocery-anchored retail– perform in the coming months.
