LAS VEGAS—Changes inside and out. That’s the theme of this exclusive RECon video interview with InvenTrust Properties’ Tom McGuinness. On both fronts those changes are indicative of a rapidly changing market.
McGuinness details the upper-echelon expansions the REIT has made internally, as he describes the simultaneous advancements being made in the industry as a whole. He also takes us on an extended view of what the future could shape up to be in this age of big Data. Click on the video link to hear:
- The characteristics of specific retail types that the REIT believes are winners in the post-e-commerce age;
- The growing use of Big Data to enhance the in-store experience; and
- How searching for healthier options might become a no-brainer as technology increasingly informs the shopping experience.
Our firm has been using Blue Vault from the first year it was available.
We have found it to be a valuable tool to verify what wholesalers tell us and to dig deep into how the reported investments are really performing.
We appreciate that Blue Vault has expanded its services from initially covering REIT's to now also including BDC's.
Our clients also appreciate that we conduct this additional due diligence on their behalf.
