Political Update with AFIRE

Online, March 16, 2021


Tuesday, March 16, 2021, 10:00–11:00 a.m. EST

A new administration is in the White House and Democrats now retain legislative majorities—but the power shift comes during a moment of acute and historical complexity as the US faces overlapping crises in economics, public health, and social and racial equity. Each crisis has profound implications on the outlook for real estate performance and the future of cross-border investment.

In the short-term, what will be the key tax and regulatory issues to track in the coming year? What’s the status of House Democrats’ US$1.9 trillion relief bill, and what should businesses and investors know? And in the long-term, as international borders re-open through an effective and global vaccine rollout, what are the geopolitical implications and opportunities of the “new normal?”

In AFIRE’s first political update of 2021, members will be joined by Duane Desiderio of The Real Estate Roundtable and other political experts (TBA) to talk about the tumultuous beginning to 2021, the late stages of pandemic-related policy in the US, and cause for optimism for the future of commercial real estate investing in the US.

This event is open to all members and invited guests.


Duane J. Desiderio, Senior Vice President and Counsel, The Real Estate Roundtable

More TBA
