New Jersey Chapter Peer-to-Peer Breakfast Forum 12/7/17 : Real Estate Commitments

Making Real Estate Commitments in an Ever-Changing Business Landscape (Without Breaking the Bank)

Big real estate decisions are risky business!   You are not only investing in an asset, but also in a locality and in your future workforce.  This investment will play out over 10 to 15 years.  The central challenge in planning for the long term is that no one knows exactly what the future holds.  Business models change, companies acquire and divest, the workforce skills you need will change and so will the composition of localities.  How can you make long-term decisions amidst such uncertainty?  Our philosophy is simple: don’t plan for what you can’t control.  Things will invariably change.  We advise our clients to plan for change, to create flexibility in their real estate strategy that enables it to shift as their business does.  We use cutting edge forecasting, stress testing and optimization techniques to help enable clients to develop a plan that adjusts as your business changes and to quantitatively manage risk.  

Join FEI New Jersey on December 7th as CBRE’s expert in this space will present this new way of thinking, the tools and techniques behind it and how they can help make your real estate portfolio more agile.
