On April 5th, 2017, Centurion President and CEO Greg Romundt participated in a panel discussion entitled "Institutional Overview: Examining the Role of Real Estate in a Diversified Portfolio" at the Canada East Institutional Real Estate Investor Forum.
the St. Andrew's Club and Conference Centre in downtown Toronto, the event was well attended by over 100 attendees including institutional investors such as Canada Pension Plan, Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, and University of Toronto Asset Management.
The topics discussed during the conference ranged from grocery-anchored real estate opportunities in Germany and the growth of creative office development in Brooklyn N.Y., to the disruptive effects of demographics in the real estate sector in general. One predominant theme that emerged was the growth opportunities in rental properties both in Canada and in the United States.
Most participants agreed that while the real estate sector was fully valued in general, there still remained opportunities in selective markets and sectors.
