New York, New York – November 27th, 2018
Compound Asset Management (“Compound”), a New York City-based real estate asset management and technology company and creator of ReTFsTM, today announced that it has been recognized by the Kairos Society as one of the 50 most innovative companies addressing real estate affordability challenges for consumers. As part of this recognition, Compound will take part in the Kairos Global K50 Summit in New York City on November 28, showcasing its business to global investors, media personalities, and founders from around the world.
The Kairos Society is specifically recognizing Compound for the way that the firm helps consumers access the world’s best real estate markets through its family of real estate thematic funds (ReTFs). These funds, which are available to a broad range of institutional and retail investors, each own and manage a portfolio of properties in markets with high barriers to entry. By holding shares of Compound ReTFs, investors participate in the real estate price appreciation and long-term growth of these markets without having to purchase properties themselves.
“Compound is working hard to reshape the real estate ownership landscape, and we’re honored that Kairos is acknowledging these efforts,” said Janine Yorio, CEO of Compound Asset Management. “We’re thrilled to take part in the Kairos Global K50 Summit this week; it’ll go a long way in keeping our team energized and connecting us with a new set of leaders to help our business grow.”
During the Summit, Compound will present before 150 of today’s most influential CEOs, industry leaders, media, and top-tier VCs. The event is designed as an immersive experience showing the pain points affecting the lives of consumers, and how companies and others in attendance are working to address these global challenges. Companies are organized into five core sectors: Spaces, Finance, Education, Health, and Exploratory Tech. Compound CEO Janine Yorio and Chief Investment Officer Jesse Stein will attend the event.
