Our guest today is Jonathan Litt, Founder and CIO at Land & Buildings. Jon is a prominent activist investor, focused on public real estate companies. Since founding Land & Buildings in 2008, Jon has waged 36 public activist campaigns frequently resulting in corporate actions to the benefit of shareholders. This is a particularly interesting time in commercial real estate - full of changes. Many public REIT valuations have fallen to 20% discounts to their asset values. While private real estate is generally held at elevated values. The lending environment is radically changed with banks pulling back, and credit unavailable for certain sectors such as office buildings.  Jon weighs in with opinions on the rapidly changing real estate market. Where we’ve been and where we’re headed.
