McCarthy worked on the research & investor outreach team, and ultimately transitioned to the investor outreach team in 2007. She was promoted to her current role in 2008. Her responsibilities include running investor outreach efforts directed at the financial advisor channel, acting as liaison in Nareit’s partnership with FTSE Russell and on Nareit’s investor relations program, and serving as lead on Nareit’s market research project focused on generalist investors.
