In our final webinar of the three-part series on Real Estate Investing, Rosch Wadera from Upside Avenue compares a set of REITs side by side to show how we can use the financial statements to decipher investment performance on a comparative basis, while also providing a holistic overview of the multifamily sector.
Joining Rosch will be Next Generation’s Erica Figueiredo to provide insight into what this process would look like if the investment were held in a tax-advantaged retirement vehicle, like a self-directed IRA, and what to expect from this type of investment strategy.

In her role, she oversees marketing strategy and execution across multiple channels. such as email, the website and social media. She also supports the sales team with events and conferences planning, creating and presenting educational content, and new client onboarding.

She holds a B.A. in Communication Studies from Kean University.
