InvenTrust Properties Prepares for the Grocery Store of the Future
July 22, 2019 | Nareit
Thomas McGuinness, president and CEO of InvenTrust Properties, joined Nareit in New York for a video interview at REITweek: 2019 Investor Conference.
McGuinness said he expects the grocery business to evolve more in the next five years than it has over the past 15 to 20 years.
“We always want to have the number one or number two grocery operator in each one of the markets [we’re in] because there’s going to be capital needed for the grocery store of the future,” McGuinness said.
I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
