Brokerage - Commentary Special Assets

real estate, like commercial properties, farm acreage, timber, precious minerals, or oil and gas assets.

Q . What are special assets, and what makes them special? A. Special assets are typically highly valuable businesses, properties or natural resources that can be difficult to convert directly to more liquid investments, like cash. In fact, I prefer to use the term illiquid assets rather than special assets. Q . What do special asset managers like yourself do for people? A. When called upon, we put professional resources in place to manage all kinds of ongoing enterprises, including family owned businesses, limited partnerships and limited liability corporations. We also have professional asset managers who take care of real estate assets such as farm acreage, residential real estate, office buildings and timber properties as well as mineral assets, including oil and gas. It’s amazing the diversity we get.
