The Cycle with Gadi Kaufmann

By: Gadi Kaufmann

Leading real estate companies, investment firms, and institutional organizations come to RCLCO when they face strategic challenges during crucial points in the cycle. Our strategic planning process and implementation tools help leaders make better investment, resource allocation, and capital decisions. In this video, Managing Director and CEO Gadi Kaufmann summarizes the RCLCO outlook and key considerations for understanding and surviving the real estate cycle.

It is key to recognize that no one really knows what will happen and when it will happen. What can be done is to prepare for the next stages of the economic and business cycles and try to anticipate them as much as possible. As each stage of the economic and business cycles implies different strategies, one has to monitor both cycles and plan business activities accordingly.

RCLCO’s outlook is that we are currently in the mature recovery stage of the cycle where conditions are improving and substantial development is occurring. We expect to continue to enjoy this moderately growing economy for the short term, with the current estimate that a relatively mild economic downturn will occur in 2017-2018, followed by recovery beginning sometime between 2018 and 2020.
