Let Keith Inform and Prepare Your Audience


Professional conferences are an opportunity for program planners to provide attendees with a perspective on real estate which is important, fresh, and essential for them to understand. Too often, however, planners opt for the tried-and-true, the conventional, even the safe view.


These are not the times to follow the beaten path. There are dangerous minefields out there throughout the real estate space. Your attendees need to learn about them before it is too late. They represent organizations with a large stake in the real estate market and they can’t afford to make bad decisions.


The focus of Keith’s presentations is to help institutions, real estate professionals, and UHNW investors avoid making big mistakes in real estate and distressed investments which could ruin them financially.


  • For example, some money managers are now pushing non-Agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) because the yields are attractive compared to lower-risk securities.  They rarely seem to discuss the severe credit risk that these MBS carry.  Your attendees need to fully understand these risks.


  • Your attendees probably do not know that many of these non-Agency residential MBS plunged from par to around 30 during the depths of the 2008-2009 credit crisis.  Some of these securities found themselves without any bids at all.  There is a complacency out there which presumes that this will not happen again. This is a completely unwarranted assumption.


  • There are professionals in the mortgage and real estate markets who do not realize that the delinquency rate of prime jumbo mortgages is now over 18% and climbing?  The loss severities on the MBS which are not guaranteed by Fannie or Freddie are now running 60-95%.  Moody’s recently did a review of over 8,000 of these non-Agency residential MBS and found over 300 which they believed would be total losses in a high-stress scenario.


  • In a 2008 interview with Tiger 21 ex-CEO Tommy Gallagher, PIMCO’s Mohammad El-Erian spoke of a “fundamental deleveraging” taking place. This is too sanitized. We are in the midst of a growing mountain of delinquent borrowers whose eventual defaults will hammer the real estate market for years.
