Real Estate Summit

Watch the Webinar Recording

Real Estate is an amazing asset class that combines the ability to generate income while benefitting from growth by investing in hard assets.  You can “DIY” (do it yourself) or hire property managers to invest locally or globally and you can invest in mature, properly managed properties or “fix’er uppers”.

Next in our 2022 series of webinars, we are pleased to present “The Wealth Stewards Real Estate Summit” – a roundtable discussion featuring some great minds in a variety of real estate topics.

In January, Wealth Stewards presented Outlook 2022, a webinar focused on trends in the economic landscape. We introduced attendees to Kenneth Gronbach, a US marketing demographer, a portfolio manager from Australia and Kate MacDonald, an award-winning Canadian portfolio manager who discussed trends in commercial and real estate trends, both locally and internationally. We heard great feedback from those who attended and the 2022 Real Estate Summit event promises to be just as valuable.
