We go behind the scenes to look at career progression in real estate investment: what are the options, which career paths are being overlooked, what knowledge and experience do different options require and how can you get them.  Equally what do investors and advisors really look for in fund managers or REITs' senior management and what do they avoid?  Finally how is compensation trending and what will the future hold?
