Big Real-Estate Firms Turn Buyers of Their Own Shares

Some publicly traded real-estate companies have found a buyer for their shares, despite empty offices, deserted hotels and reeling shopping malls—the companies themselves.

Real-estate owners, including

SL Green Realty Corp.


Healthcare Trust of America Inc.,

say stock-market investors have significantly undervalued their property holdings compared with what they could fetch in the private market. While some of these companies authorized buying back their own shares even before the coronavirus pandemic, they are betting that with a vaccine rollout under way, travel, office work and mall shopping will bounce back after a terrible year for major property types.

Brookfield Asset Management Inc.

took this strategy one step further last week, when it offered to buy the nearly 40{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} stake in

LP it doesn’t already own for $5.9 billion. Brookfield Property, which BAM spun off about eight years ago, is one of the world’s largest real-estate investors and owns the giant office and retail complexes Brookfield Place in New York and London’s Canary Wharf.

The stock market “doesn’t properly value or appreciate the quality of the assets that we own,”

Brian Kingston,

managing partner of BAM’s real-estate group, said last week.

Interior Designer Shares Home Trends for the New Year

The times they are a-changin’ …

In this enlightening and informative interview with Robyn Baumgarten of Interiors by Just Design of Woodbury and Manhasset, the seasoned interior discusses changing trends for 2021 and shares her unique perspective on all things home design …’cause there’s no place like home.

Despite the pandemic, she continues to safely meet with clients and help them reimagine their spaces to fit their families’ changing lifestyles. 

Can you give readers a glimpse into your recent design projects? A unique project, in Old Westbury, was designed around the visual idea of art and how it can impact overall design. Having a bold, one-of-a-kind art piece as the focal point lays the groundwork from which the remainder of the design follows. Adding artwork is one of the most versatile and crucial design elements; without it, a space will seem empty and lifeless. My secret? I use proper scale within the space and select works that my clients truly love.

In a more challenging project, in Old Brookville, custom mahogany wood panels were created and mounted on the existing stone fireplace, surrounded

WSJ Wealth Adviser Briefing: Dollars Not Shares, Pet Product Bulls, Interior Design Mistakes

Special purpose acquisition companies are having a moment in the sun, and they’re making their way into the wealth management industry, Larry Roth, founder and managing partner of RLR Strategic Partners, told Barron’s.

Though they have been around in some form since the 1990s, SPACs have grown in popularity in recent years. As of Dec. 1, there were 201 IPOs of SPACs in 2020, with gross proceeds of $69.6 billion, according to SPACInsider, more than double the 59 transactions in 2019.

With the acquisition frenzy that’s swept the wealth management industry in recent years, will it be long before SPACs come calling on RIAs and broker-dealers? To be sure, wealth management firms should conduct full due diligence on any acquisition suitor who comes calling. That said, if and when the moment comes, a SPAC might make the most sense for some late-growth-stage companies as a way to raise financing that doesn’t carry the baggage or costs of traditional IPOs, debt or direct private-equity buyouts.

Below, some of the best analysis and insight from WSJ writers and columnists, the Dow Jones Newswires team and occasionally beyond, on investing, the wealth-management business and more.
