Institutional Investors | John Burns Real Estate Consulting

Institutional Investors


Our clients trade with confidence and outperform the market because they have made educated strategic decisions and increased their value, returns, and profits from working with us.

Our institutional investor clients are some of the top-performing firms on Wall Street. They reached their position thanks to a strategic view of the marketplace as well as access to research that presents market conditions clearly, early, and accurately. In 2007/08, our understanding of the housing cycle aided three of our investment clients to report 100% returns.


Integrity Research Compliance Accreditation

We have received an Integrity Research Compliance Accreditation, which affirms that our company’s research compliance controls comply with industry best practices.

Accreditation demonstrates a research firm’s commitment to compliance best practices. To receive accreditation, research firms undergo due diligence from Integrity Research. Accredited firms must not only have appropriate policies in place but also continually take steps to ensure that policies are understood and practiced.

In achieving accreditation, we demonstrated that we adhere to each of Integrity Research’s Key Compliance Controls for housing industry consulting firms as well as a majority of overall best practices for political intelligence firms.

Best practices are based upon industry surveys, recent case law, regulator sentiment, applicable laws, rules, and regulations and are intended to reduce risks related to confidential information as well as other compliance-related risks.

If you would like to learn more about our accreditation, please contact Don Walker.
