Welcome to the Winter Edition of The Centurion. This year we’ve continued to make incredible strides and have wrapped up Q3 on a strong note. Centurion has grown its assets under management to approximately $6 billion, a 35% increase from last year that was supported by a strong acquisition strategy.

This quarter, Centurion won six awards demonstrating the success of our strategy, culture, and team. We also completed 3 acquisitions and were delighted to host our first in-person Advisor events since the beginning of the pandemic.

Greg Romundt’s Past Industry Insights: Relevant Now More Than Ever

Greg Romundt released two whitepapers sharing his personal insights and analysis of the real estate industry and the current macroeconomic landscape.

As the Bank of Canada continues to increase its policy interest rate, you may find Greg’s whitepaper Interest Rates, Inflation, Capitalization Rates, and Returns particularly insightful. Greg shares how the real estate sector can anticipate rising interest rates and inflationary pressure to impact capitalization rates and expected returns.

In The Regime Has Changed Greg discusses the outlook for a world with higher and longer inflationary pressures than currently anticipated along with new insights on topics including supply chain, commodities, re-armament, wages, and monetary and fiscal policy. This is a follow-on from his original paper Regime Change Ahead: Why I’ve Changed My Core Thesis from Disinflation to Stagflation which was published at the turning point in inflation in August 2020.
