    I think I have had Brookfield stock for over 30 years back when it was Edper, Hees, Brascan, Coscan. It used to have a very complicated owner ship structure. Anyway I made money by doing what Brookfield was doing. It sold Brookfield Homes , I sold, when they starting buying I bought , when they bought the Brookfield Homes convertible pref so did I. There were so few owners of that issue it couldn't trade.

    Can someone clarify the below:
    They bought the office in Park avenue at $ 434M and sold 21 years later at $2B. That is a CAGR of 8%, which is comparable to returns from an index fund. Not to judge anything, just trying to make sure I didn't miss something here.

    • Manraj Natt

      It's a little more complicated, they bought the property with only 140M down, renovated the property, and refinanced it multiple times pulling out significant amounts of cash. I suggest reading the section titled 245 Park Avenue in the 2017 shareholders report for the full synopsis, it's hard to calculate CAGR but it definitely exceeds 8% bam.brookfield.com/~/media/Files/B/BrookField-BAM-IR-V2/quarterly-reports/2017/f-bam-q1-2017-ltr-to-shareholders.pdf

    @16:54 the building in Manhattan bought for 432M$ in 1996 and sold for 2200M$ in 2017, that's exactly an 8% a year CAGR (Compounded Annual Growth Rate) over a 21 years period.
    The Dow Jones in the same period did 9% CAGR (dividend reinvested) dqydj.com/dow-jones-return-calculator/
    So I don't know why he glorifies an investment that did worse than the equity market as a whole.
    And thank God he says they bought it in a stressed period and it was located in Park Avenue.

      I agree with Alex. Also, asset light doesn't make sense if they have no cash flow and there is a lot of competition. The idea is cash flow generation and great barriers to entry.

And took advantage of people who trusted him in 2004. i cant prove it without a document stole from me by power of attorney of estate. But great name and he is very smart. i have forgave but cant forget. But this is closure cause my grand mother who was in his corner would say have faith and dont let past destroy your future. God Bless Bruce Flatt and i wish you the best.
