From the opening keynote speech from JLL chief economist Ryan Severino, to the industrial spotlight from Matt Tucker, partner and co-chief investment officer at Bridge Investment Group, people were not holding back enthusiasm for industrial assets at the GlobeSt.com Net Lease conference. The word darling was used more than once, and investors on every panel said that they were increasing exposure to the asset class.

Severino admitted that he didn’t call industrial the darling of net lease lightly, but he added that the industry is looking at the asset class in a fundamentally different way following the pandemic. It has a larger role to play not only as a CRE investment, but in the asset’s role in the supply chain and as a driver of economic activity. Industrial assets now play an outsized role in the overall real estate market.
