Pension Fund Trustees and Administrators Earn Continuing Education Credit Through TEXPERS' Online Learning
Public employee pension fund trustees and administrators from across Texas took part in a live online learning session discussing the housing market environment for real estate investing.
TEXPERS hosted Real Estate Investing: Is Your Portfolio Positioned for Tomorrow's World?, presented by Nuveen Real Estate. Nuveen subject matter experts Melissa Reagen, Head of Research, Americas, and Jay Martha, Managing Director, Global Head of Housing, gave the roughly 45-minute presentation that also allowed the audience to ask questions.
Reagen and Martha described the benefits of applying a sector-specialized model to the construction and management of real estate portfolios. The presenters also shared data showing the sector-specialized approach as beneficial for pension investors navigating a rapidly shifting landscape of technology, demographics, consumer behavior, work patterns, and living arrangements.
