Panelists at a lunch general session said REITs own top quartile assets and have good access to capital, are attractively priced compared to private real estate, will have a higher equity market capitalization in 12-24 months, are more likely to be involved in public-to-public mergers for the time being, and are in a strong position to capitalize on how ESG investing and trends ultimately develop.
