In “What now?” in the May 2020 issue of Institutional Real Estate Americas, the editors of Institutional Real Estate, Inc.’s regional publications discussed some of the possible implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for the commercial real estate investment world.

The editors agreed the reactions of central bankers around the world were likely to have significant impacts on commercial real estate.
