CRE: The Big Picture Perspective with Ian Formigle

Ian Formigle is the Chief Investment Officer at CrowdStreet Advisors. CrowdStreet Advisors give clients access to investments that are different from their traditional real estate holdings while helping them achieve their financial goals. Ian is a real estate professional and serial entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience in real estate, private equity startups, and options trading at CrowdStreet and serves as the key decision maker for all investments on its marketplace.

In this podcast, Doug and Ian discuss how CrowdStreet Advisors is helping advisors cut through the data, offering valuable insights for potential commercial real estate (CRE) investment opportunities. 

They also discussed:

  • If the outlook for investing in real estate has changed 
  • Why there are some commercial real estate headwinds yet no large pullback on some of the prices across the sectors that many people expected
  • The sectors Formigle sees as bullish and bearish
  • The bankruptcies of some major retail chains and if they hurt the general perception of the CRE industry or offer an opportunity
  • The motivators to get people off the sidelines and investing

CrowdStreet, Inc. (“CrowdStreet”) maintains a commercial real estate investor technology platform (the “CrowdStreet Marketplace”) through which investment opportunities are offered. Advisory services are offered. CrowdStreet Advisors is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CrowdStreet that provides advisors and their clients with access to curated private commercial real estate opportunities selected from CrowdStreet’s proprietary deal flow, sourced from a deep network of 300+ real estate sponsors, developers, and operators. Investment opportunities on the CrowdStreet Marketplace are speculative and involve substantial risk. Investors should not invest unless they can sustain the risk of loss of capital, including the risk of total loss of capital.
