  • Have you closed new capital commitments?
  • How would you compare the average size of these commitments to what you raised before the COVID crisis?
  • How would you characterize your pipeline for acquisitions?
  • How concerned are you about the recession?
  • Rate how you expect this recession to impact commercial real estate relative to the Great Recession of 2007-2009?
