How much will there be to gain in the next recession? Investors are predicting a recession in the next one to two years, and some are waiting on the sidelines to take advantage of opportunities. However, at the Allen Matkins’ View From the Top conference at the Beverly Hilton this week, Michael Van Konynenburg, president of Eastdil Secured, gave an economic update and posed the question. He pointed out that with little over-leverage in the market, there will be few forced sellers in the next recession, unlike last in the last recession. As a result, waiting for a recession may not be advantageous.
