Making real estate assets liquid with Richard Croft, Co-Founder and Chairman of leading investment group, M7, David Delaney, CEO of property stock exchange IPSX, and Anna Clare Harper The Return: Property & Investment Podcast

Transparency, liquidity, and listed real estate

I had a fascinating discussion with Richard Croft, Co-Founder and Chairman of leading investment group, M7 and David Delaney, CEO of new property stock exchange IPSX about their first single real estate asset Initial Public Offering (IPO).

Richard and David have exceptional credentials in real estate and finance, with years of experience, and billions of transactions under their belts. Richard is the Executive Chairman and co-founder of the M7 Real Estate group, and has been involved in over €8 billion of transactions across the UK and Europe during his 26 year career in real estate, founded and sold a European real estate fund management business, and is a Non-Executive Director of IPSX.

David is IPSX’s Group CEO. His previous experience includes managing $1bn book of business at Thomson Reuters as Head of Strategic Clients and Solutions, and 25 years at Credit Suisse (where he became Head of Fixed Income Sales for interest rate products) and Barclays Bank.

Richard and David share a deep frustration with the issues that prevent investors from selecting and investing in assets for themselves, the lack of transparency in the listed real estate market, and the lack of liquidity available for many real estate assets.

Their current mission is to solve these issues, through an unprecedented single asset listing of Mailbox REIT on IPSX. So, will it work?



Highlights of the episode include:


What liquidity is really worth to investors

The high perceived risk of anything new

The problems investors face with open-ended and closed-ended real estate funds

Whether investors really value choice and democracy in investing
