Show Notes

Investing in mobile home parks is a wonderful example of how far the definition of an alternative asset can be stretched. It sounds odd, yet when you dig into this asset, you’ll find that it is simply a different way of getting exposure to residential property.

Westbrooke’s investments in this asset class have delivered strong USD-based returns. As we learnt on this show, some of the biggest names in the investment industry have exposure to this market, including Warren Buffett!

Get any thoughts of Jerry Springer out of your mind and prepare yourself for a great learning experience with Jonathan Loeb from Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management.
