“We are freaking out like retail is going away,” exclaimed Clark Briner, founder and president at Revere Capital, on the Capital Markets Update: What’s In Store for 2018 panel at RealShare Southern California. While there are a lot of headline about the failure of retail, Briner pointed out that the ratio is 90 to 10, and our brick and mortar presence isn’t going anywhere. The panel included speakers Michael Klein, co-Founder and CEO at Freedom Financial Funds; Bryan Shaffer, principal and managing director at George Smith Partners; and Zach Murphy, co-founder and managing director at Pender Capital, with moderator Marc Renard, managing director of capital markets at Cushman & Wakefield.
