Think Outside The Stocks

Most people are initially hesitant when starting to invest in the stock market, real estate, or just investing in general. A significant part of their concerns – also one of the most substantial obstacles for most investors – is the fear of financial loss. Today we speak with a mentor and the Founder and CEO of Grocapitus Investments, Neal Bawa, also known as the Mad Scientist of the syndication world.

Neal, with his unique perspective backed by data science, explains how investors can take a look at the problems like recession, high-interest rates, and inflation from a completely different perspective and ask themselves a question about how to approach investing in today’s challenging environment. With hope on the horizon, challenge your mindset with a conversation backed by data.

Neal talks about what he does, how he started in real estate, why he believes in real estate over the stock market, and how he found success all through the data he collects. He also shares his unique real estate data methodologies to connect with data-driven investors who share his vision.

In 2 part of this episode, we talk about why multifamily is still a good investment despite the recession, what other asset classes can people invest in, how Neal thinks outside the stock, and so much more.

About Neal Bawa

Neal Bawa is a technologist who is universally known in real estate circles as the Mad Scientist of Multifamily. Besides being one of the most in-demand speakers in commercial real estate, Neal is a data guru, a process freak, and an outsourcing expert. Neal treats his $1 billion-dollar multifamily portfolio as an ongoing experiment in efficiency and optimization.

The Mad Scientist lives by two mantras. His first mantra is that “We can only manage what we can measure.” His second mantra is that “Data beats gut feel by a million miles“. These mantras and a dozen other disruptive beliefs drive profit for his 900+ investors.
