10:35 Panel:  ESG, Impact Investing, and DEI - Unlocking What The Future Holds For The Industry

In the past, ESG was treated as an industry buzzword used solely when discussing energy efficiency, cost reductions, and risk mitigation.  Today, the conversation has clearly evolved and become more complex as ESG policies are now embedded in every stage of real estate investing.  Faced with increased scrutiny, many investors have deepened their commitment to ESG, impact investing, and DEI initiatives.  Likewise, they have been able to do so without forsaking returns, representing a seismic shift in the industry.   Join us for a candid conversation with leading LPs and GPs about changes in the investment landscape and the lasting impact of ESG.  Can the benefits of ESG investing be effectively measured?  How do such investments stack up in comparison to others?  What is the investor appetite for such investments?  Is it truly possible to do good while making a profit?  What is the role of new and emerging managers in this changing landscape?
