In an unexpected move, the large net lease real estate investment trust and REIT manager W.P. Carey Inc. said Wednesday its CEO and a member of its board, Trevor Bond, was stepping down.
He is being replaced by current Carey board member and former chief financial officer Mark J. DeCesaris, who served as an executive for the company from 2005 to 2013.
The market reacted negatively to the news. At noon on Thursday, shares of W.P. Carey had dropped $4.27 per share, or 7.6%. Shares were trading at $51.62.
I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
