01 APR 2019 - Technology is changing the physical layout of cities, says Jim Garman, who runs real estate investing for Goldman Sachs’ Merchant Banking Division in Europe. For instance, while e-commerce is driving down demand for brick-and-mortar storefronts, it’s accelerating demand for warehouses and other logistical assets. “Logistics has become a very in-favor asset class for investors,” Garman says. “Whereas retail has become a very out-of-favor asset class at the moment.” Also in the episode, Garman discusses the change in office buildings, student housing, and more.
