On InvestmentWeek UK: Ryan Dobratz on taking advantage of Brexit Disclocations

INVESTMENT WEEK |  December 13, 2016

Ryan Dobratz, co-lead manager of the Third Avenue Real Estate Value Fund, talks to Lawrence Gosling @ Investment Week UK on global, value-oriented opportunities and improving sentiment towards London and Hong Kong.


“We entered 2016 with only about 7% of our Fund in the U.K.  However, after Brexit and the dislocations we saw in the market place, that allowed us to step in and buy into a lot of really high-quality U.K. property companies at big discounts to what we think their values are worth.”
