9:30 a.m. - Keynote by David Eyzenberg
David Eyzenberg, president of Eyzenberg & Company and an adjunct assistant professor in the MBA and Real Estate Master’s program in New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business.
Topic: In his talk, David Eyzenberg will discuss capitalizing commercial real estate transactions with innovative financial structures. As interest rates have continued to widen, investors have turned to structured finance products to capitalize their deals. The emergence of ground leases, mezzanine debt and various equity structures have allowed investors and developers to achieve yield in a rising cost environment.
10 a.m. - Keynote by Lewis Johnson
Lewis Johnson, co-chief investment officer at Capital Wealth Advisors
Topic: Perhaps no sector of the American economy is as cyclical as real estate. Its ups and downs are legendary, creating fortunes for some and bankrupting others. Yet the topic of cycles is not well understood, or their volatility would not so dominate the underlying fundamentals of the business. Is there a more disciplined way to think about cycles and their impact on our business? Over the past twenty years, Mr. Johnson analyzed and invested in more than a hundred cycles. In his talk he will share what he has learned about harnessing the power of cyclical volatility and how to avoid being a victim of the cycle.

Topic: Retailing has been a hot topic for the past few years. There has been much news about the change in retail and how that is affecting brick and mortar retailing. Mr. Pollard will discuss the trends in brick and mortar retail based on his over thirty years of involvement in retail real estate throughout South Carolina and in-particular the Myrtle Beach market. His talk will focus on what is truth verses perception and what is the retail new frontier.
