    The Global Perspective on Real Estate Investing

    The Global Perspective on Real Estate Investing

    On today’s show we are talking about the global perspective on investing. At the heart of all investing is the law of supply and demand. 

    In real estate that’s a combination of factors.


    Demographics. Is population growing or shrinking based on birth rate? That variable has a slow but profound impact on demand for housing. We will come back to that later.
    Immigration. Is population rising or falling based on migration of people from around the world?
    Jobs. Does the area experience employment growth and does the local economy mean rising or falling prosperity for the population at large?

    Most developed economies have shrinking population due to declining birth rates. People are not having as many babies as they once did. That’s true throughout Western Europe, Russia, the United States, Canada, Japan, China, South Korea, Brazil and countless others. 

    This means that in the absence of immigration, demand for housing is going to fall in the long term. We see this in Japan where there are more than 11M vacant homes. This is a dramatic about face from the situation in the 1980’s when it seemed that Japan’s economy was unstoppable. 

    Population is growing in the US and Canada through immigration, and to a lesser extent migration.

    We talk about all of the problems in our respective countries. But many countries are not attracting immigration. 



    I don’t know of millions of people moving to China, or Russia, or Japan. The population in the US is growing at 0.4% per year, largely through immigration. The population in Canada is growing at 1.8% per year, almost entirely as a result of immigration. It’s that growth that makes these destinations attractive for foreign investment when you layer it on top of the global alternatives.

    International Investing

    International Investing

    On today's show we are talking about international investing. Real estate investing is a hyper local business. But that doesn’t mean you have to live near your investments. Live where you want to live and invest where the numbers make sense.



    There are many people who live in the North East of the US and only invest in Texas or Florida for example. In our company we are active in several states across the US and we are also active in Canada.

    We build what we think is the right product for a given location based on supply and demand and the financial metrics for that specific location. These are almost always special situations. These are special situations in the sense that it is a unique combination of circumstances that creates the inefficiency in the market and leaves behind what we believe is a glaring opportunity.

    Now I need to be clear, we are not scouring the market for opportunities. With very few exceptions, these have all come to us unsolicited. 

    It doesn’t matter if the project is in Colorado or Florida or Utah or Canada.

    I’d like to invite you to attend an upcoming webinar on Tuesday evening to learn more about a new project in Ottawa Canada.

    Today’s episode is not a solicitation for investment. The opportunity is open to accredited investors residing in the US and will be by prospectus only in compliance with US securities regulations.

    Negative Carry Trade Losses in Japan

    Negative Carry Trade Losses in Japan

    On today’s show we are going to look at something that has been making financial headlines all over the world over the past two days. The purpose of discussing it on this show is that even the major financial media like the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg have been misreporting the story. 
    The headline is that another Bank, this time a Japanese bank is running into trouble. The assumption is that the problem has to do with the inversion of the yield curve and investment in long term treasuries is the reason for the bank’s problems. Some of the problems which cause the failure of Silicon Valley Bank, First Republic Bank and Signature Bank last year stemmed from the need to raise additional cash, and in so doing, those banks were forced to sell US Treasuries at a loss. If those banks had the luxury of holding those bonds to maturity, then there would have been no losses. 
    What we will discuss today is that the symptoms look similar, but that the root cause of the actual problem is quite different.

    What is an Investment Worth?

    What is an Investment Worth?

    On today’s show we are talking about investing fundamentals. What is an investment worth? If you watch the TV show Shark Tank you will see the contestant say that they are seeking $X in exchange for y% of the company. The sharks then do some quick math to determine the enterprise value and then compare the income as a percentage of the valuation. They are trying to get a sense of the current value of the company based on multiples of net income. That’s how companies should be valued. 

    We now have a stock market index that is dominated by five companies which are Nvidia, Microsoft, Apple, Meta and Amazon. 

    All of this is being driven by the anticipation of the impact that AI will have on the industry. 

    We need to ask ourselves questions as to whether what is happening in the stock market makes sense or not.
