He also touches upon on ESG investing.  He believes ESG is hugely topical in the broader equity market.  And in our world of real estate, the focus on CO2 emissions are on the physical buildings themselves.  As Steve looks ahead to 2021, he is most optimistic in data centres, manufactured housing and single family rentals.
