This week's guest on In Focus is Erik Jacobs, Partner at HORECA Investment Partners, in conversation with Alexi Khajavi.
"2020 was about getting the house in order, making sure we were properly structured to weather the storm....and now it's about growing the business."
HORECA Investment Partners is an investment platform representing a family office in Asia, targeting investments into hospitality and real estate. Jacobs discusses why they are continuing to build on extended stay and how this segment remained resilient throughout the crisis. As a small family office they have "all the flexibility in the world to determine where they want to invest" which makes this a very interesting conversation.
Asked about conversions of office and retail spaces, Jacobs talks about how and why they are considering tapping into that space.
Also on the list of topics are leases, sustainability, and a look at Questex's first quarterly investor sentiment assessment of 2021.
Family offices have the ability to take a short term but also a long-term view which also brings flexibility and diversification for investors.
Don't miss this insightful conversation.
