IREM's professional development seminar visits Houston.
The Institute's successful professional development seminar,
Real Estate Portfolio Management, held in New York and California last
year, will make its way to Houston for a two-day session at the Hyatt
Regency on March 25-26. The program is designed for managers who work
directly with portfolio or asset management issues or who interact with
portfolio managers. The seminar provides an in-depth introduction to
real estate portfolio management that combines academic theory with real
world examples. Co-sponsored with the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Business's Center for Urban Land Economics Research, the
seminar begins by differentiating between the different functions and
objectives of property management, asset management and portfolio
management. Attendees will also be given an introduction to portfolio
theory, with an emphasis on developing intuition and understanding of
theory and learning terminology.
Instructor Timothy Riddiough is the E.J. Plesko Professor of Real
Estate at Wisconsin and is widely published. His research interests
include financial intermediation and debt contracting, investment
theory, option pricing, law and economy and regulation--all as they
apply to real estate.
This seminar earns two elective credits toward the Institute's
CPM designation, credit as an elective course toward the University of
Wisconsin's Real Estate Certificate Program and one continuing
education unit for each 10 classroom hours awarded by Wisconsin's
Center for Urban Land Economics Research, 1.4 units.
