Welcome to The Alternatives Mason: Building Alts Knowledge Brick by Brick. Banrion Capital Management uses technology to help independent advisors scale and educate themselves on alternative investments. Since education is such a big piece of the Banrion mission and business, we are excited to kick off this series to dive into the nits and grits of the alternatives space. Episode 16 "New Opportunities in Commercial Real Estate" features Cory Johnson, Co-Founder & CEO of Pender Capital.

Cory Johnson serves as Chief Executive Officer of Pender Capital and brings over 20 years of experience in real estate acquisition, development, finance, and asset management.
