Bob Steers, Executive Chairman of Cohen & Steers, recently had a conversation with Howard Marks, co-chairman of Oaktree Capital Management, for the 2023 Real Estate Luminaries Series, which was hosted by The Steers Center for Global Real Estate at Georgetown University.

Bob and Howard discuss the current state of financial markets, the impact of recent banking stress within real estate and Howard’s famous Sea Change memo [excerpt below].
