The L-Blast | February 2021
We hope everyone is well and got through the winter storm safely. It was a challenging time for Texas and we sure hope this is all the snow we get this year! We are excited spring is around the corner and a new proxy season is upon us. Much has changed over the past year and effective communication to stakeholders is more important than ever. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you need assistance with any aspect of your proxy statement.
In this L-Blast, we turn our attention to the real estate industry. In our main article, we share data on real estate compensation over the past 3 years in terms of base salary and total cash compensation. Specifically, in this article, we analyze compensation changes within the sub-sectors of real estate; office/ industrial, residential, retail, and the aggregate average of the sub-sectors.
The next article focuses on talent and the concern in finding skilled workers to fill key positions in the real estate sector. There is still a lot of uncertainty and it’s a time for companies to re-assess their compensation structures and talent recruitment strategies.
The final article provides good guidance for company executives as they begin to reclaim office space, suggesting careful analysis of their real estate utilization and important considerations to align real estate assets with company objectives. It also offers steps CXOs in commercial real estate companies can take to help lead their organizations through the current health and economic uncertainties.

The pandemic has significantly impacted the real estate sector. With a surge in the number of employees who work from home, the demand for office space has softened. At the same time, growth in e-commerce has exploded, resulting in further disruption of traditional retail business. As the post- COVID effects of the pandemic continue to plague the real estate market, we can prepare for changes in compensation and strategies in the interim adjustment period.READ MORE

THE STORY BEHIND THE VERY FIRST RABBI TRUST
Did you know that the very first Rabbi Trust was, in fact, for a real rabbi?! Legend has it that he had been a great spiritual leader in his synagogue and was getting ready to retire. His congregation wanted to bless him by setting up a retirement plan of sorts – a non-qualified benefit plan that he could draw upon as he enjoyed his retirement.
