Activist Investors “Fact of Life” in Real Estate Now, Cicco Says

Marty Cicco, senior managing director at Evercore, joined for a video interview at REITWeek 2016: NAREIT’s Investor Forum at the Waldorf Astoria New York.

Evercore is an independent investment banking advisory firm.

Cicco said he expects activist shareholders to continue to play a role in the commercial real estate sector. “It’s a fact of life in the public markets going forward,” he said.

Cicco also discussed the slowdown in the issuance of REIT preferred shares.
