Event description


Alts for RIAs 2017

Alts for RIAs is a half-day seminar for financial advisors seeking expertise on alternative investment due diligence. Improve client outcomes, make valuable connections and share best practices. Join us as we gather RIA leaders to address frequently asked questions when analyzing offerings, conducting due diligence and implementing alternatives.

Private Real Estate Investments

High net worth investors are marketed a bewildering array of private real estate deals, funds and syndications that promise high yields or outsized gains. Investment strategies, risks and legal structures differ markedly within these private deals and non-listed Reg D offers, presenting analysis and due diligence challenges for most advisors.

When clients seek help to understand and evaluate private real estate investments, advisors who are prepared with a map to navigate the alternatives landscape deliver superior value, while enhancing trusted advisor relationships. This seminar will provide advisors with such a map and checklist for use when conducting due diligence and discussing private real estate investments with clients.

Friday, April 28th, 2017

8:00 am - 9:00 am – Registration & Breakfast Networking

9:00 am - 9:15 am – Welcome

9:15 am - 10:15 am – Session One: How to Evaluate Trust Deeds and Other Private Real Estate Debt Investments. Shafiq Taymuree, Chief Investment Officer, Stonecrest.

  • What are the distinctions among private lending structures available to investors? For example, whole trust deeds and mortgage funds, fractional and hypothecated loans, syndications and crowdfunding platforms?
  • What are the commonly overlooked factors that can cause 0% recovery rates on poorly structured trust deeds and other commonly marketed real estate debt structures?
  • How are risks mitigated in private lending?

10:15 am - 11:15 am – Session Two: Understanding and Dissecting Private Real Estate Equity Deal Terms. Martin A. Stever, President, Pacific West Land LLC.

  • In this new era of the JOBS Act, with bond yields riding generational lows and the stock markets in frothy territory, high net worth investors are frequently marketed private real estate deals, funds, LLCs, and syndications promising high yields and/or high IRRs. Within these many non-listed Reg D offers, fees are often hidden or obscured, with GP participation laid out behind variable, complicated calculations. When an RIA is asked for help by clients seeking to understand, dissect, and judge such opportunities, being forearmed with a list of factors that should be systematically considered will bring huge value to clients, while buffing the RIA's reputation as the go to source of financial advice. This seminar will provide RIAs with such a list.
  • In this session we will cover the four most important factors that RIAs and their clients should drill down on from within the terms of private real estate deals. We will talk about current trends in deal structures and general suitability considerations for investors. Private real estate deals can be tax advantaged, offer superior returns, and act as hedge against inflation, but there's no such thing as a free lunch. This session will give RIAs the tools to help clients figure out how much lunch costs, and if that cost is appropriate.

11:15 am - 12:15 pm – Session Three: Profiting from Distressed Real Estate in All Market Cycles. Fireside chat with Jon Freeman, Founder and President, Stonecrest.

  • How true are the biggest myths in distressed real estate investing?
  • Most investors purchase locally. How is distressed investing operated and managed nationally?
  • Where is the mountain of distressed asset "shadow inventory" that loomed so large before?
  • When will the next downturn in the cycle happen, and what can be done to prepare?
  • What is the opportunity today in distressed properties and non-performing notes?

12:15 pm - 12:30 pm Alts for RIAs Wrap Up
