As wealth accumulation escalatesat adramaticpace, consumers will find thatmoneycannotbuy ever ything especiallya swanky house simplyat thesnapoftheirfingers

That realization in year threeofthe COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic comes amidst risingin ation in theUnited States,geopoliticalturmoil along Russia andChina’s borders, continued pressureonavailable primehousing inventor yand fears of abubble.But MarciRossell,chief economistof eading Real EstateCompanies of the World, is notmuchper turbed

“Bubblesrequire that people are buying notbecause they needor want to buy, butbecausethecollective consciousnessbelievesthatpricescan only go up,” Ms.Rossell says.“Idon’t thinkthat’swhereweare

“People maythink they are overpaying, buttheydon’t care,” she says.“They need abiggerhouse with morespace,sotheyare okay withthat.”

In this interview,Ms. Rossell discussestrendsinthe af uentmarket, high-net-wor th consumerbehavior, wealth grow th,impac tofrisinginterest ratesand fears of ahousingmarket bubble.Please readon.

Q. What overalltrendshaveyou seen forthe af uentmarket andthe luxurybuyer?

Oneofthe thingsI have homed in on is thefac tthatglobal wealth increased by nearly 60trillion overthe last two

r M rciRo c i conomi to L din R E t t om ni o t Wor d L din RE

years. So,inthe middle of thebiggest disturbance to theglobal economy thatanyofushave seeninour lifetime, thevalueofwealth,orthesum totalof stocks,bonds, realestateand assets, increased by 28. trillion in 2020 and nearly 30trillionin2021.

WhilehalfofthisgrowthisinEurope andthe U.S.,the otherhalfisspread throughout theglobe.Thattranslates to incredible buying powerinmany marketsworldwide

Q. o youexpectthis trendto continue in and hat ill happento that money?

If youbelievepurchasesand spending aregrounded in howwealthy people are, yes. They gotwealthierin 2020 and even moresoin2021. That is aremarkablestatisticthatweshouldn’t lose sightofinterms of wherethe

world is headed

People want to spendmoneyon luxur yassetslikerealestate, andthe grow th of thoseassets,atthatrateand pace,isunprecedented.

Q. hould e be concernedabout a housingbubble?

No.First,bubblesrequire that people arebuying notbecausethey need or want to buy, butbecausethe collec tive consciousness believes that prices canonlygoup. Idon’t think that’s whereweare

People maythink they are overpaying, buttheydon’t care.They need abiggerhousewith morespace, so they areokaywiththat.

Secondly,abubblerequires alot of leverage.Whenpeople areleveraging toomuch, insolvency problems develop. People arenot leveragedlike they were in 20 05,2006or200 , which createda boomthatturnedintoa bust Those numbersare notherethistime around. People have already made their money.

Q. Whatis theaf uent consumer mindset as e head into year three of thepandemic?

Oneofthe shockers forthe luxur y buyerhas been that, forthe first time in their recentmemor y, maybein their entirelives, theyhave themoney and stillcannot buysomething. This is particularly true of theAmerican consumer

TheU.S.mindset is,ifI have the

checkbook,itdoesnot matter what it costs.If Iwant thatSubzerorefrigerator, Ican getit. If Iwantthathouse in Palm Springs, Ican getit. Because of supply chain issuesand thedemandfor housing, that is notnecessarilythecase. uxur ybuyersdon’t feel in control of their destiny in away that they are accustomed,and to acer tain degree this will continuein 2022

Q. What do youexpectfor the housingmarket?

Prices maynot go up like they did last year,but Idon’t expec tabig decline.

We will continuetohave inventor yissues, partlybecause new homebuilding is notkeeping upwith demand argebuildershave been consolidating foryears,and smaller onesareretiring very quicklyasthat population ages.These challenges are compoundedbysupplychain issues impacting theavailability of building materials.

Q. What aboutthe potentialfor rising interest rates? eep in mindthatjustbecausethe

FederalReser ve mayraise rateson theshort end, it does notnecessarily translatetoacomparableincrease in thelong-term Idonot thinkthe interest rate pic ture will changedramaticallyover thenex t12 months

Q. What aboutthe luxury vacation homemarket?

Oneofthesurprisingdevelopments of 2020 wastheescalation of

retirements forbabyboomers.

Normally,justlikeyou canpredict births and deaths,you canpredict retirements consistently.

In theU.S., therewere1.3 million retirements more than whatwewould typically expec t. People didn’t want to figureout anew wayofworking. Theyhadthemoney, and thevalue of their house wasup. They thought, “Why don’tIretireearly ” This trend continued in 2021 andislikelyto continuein2022.

Theescalation of second-home purchasesshouldcontinue astherate of retirementincreases.

Q. Anyclosinginsights?

Oneoftheunexpec ted consequencesofthe pandemic is the greatrearrangement of peoplein termsofoccupations, employers or geographies.

Forexample,beforethe pandemic, themillennial generation wasslowly moving outofhigh-densit yareasas they formed familiesandneeded space. Thepandemic heightened that dramatically, and we aresuddenly seeing theimpac tonouter-ring suburbs, wherepricesare escalating.

In thesix th and last series,wesee therise of themiddle classand thedecline of thearistocraticwayoflife as taxes areraised and thecosts of running largeestates increases. Many British aristocraticfamilies wentbankrupt and were forced to sellof ftheir land andpossessionstopayof f theirdebts

Setinthe 1920 s, theCrawleys’ problems seem very quaint,but thelessons of histor yastheyrelatetolarge estatesandwealthyfamilies areoften repeated

Ihave advised many families overseveraldecades and seethesame problems cropping up repeatedly. The traditionalway to owna substantialmansionis forthe eldestchild to inherit boththehouse and thebusiness, such as afarm, andfor theother children to make their ownway in life

Butthisformatisoften resisted by familieswho want to treattheir children fairly.Iffamilies want to keep the mansionfor thechildrentoshare or leaveittoone without thefundstomaintain it,disasterwill ensue

TheJohnsonfamilydecided to leave thehouse to the eldestsonand thesubstantialfarmtothe second.The result wasthatthehouse fell intodisrepairasArnie the eldestson whoinherited thehouse struggled to maintain itwithout sufficientincome to suppor tit.

Meanwhilethe second sonArchie,who livedinamodest home, buthad considerable income,lived in comparative comfort and luxur y.

In another case,Uncle Anderson lef tthe mansionand it s possessions in trustfor hisnephew John,the eldest sonwho workedhardall hislifetobuild up significant reser vesto fund themaintenanceand repair of thehouse,whichwas his prideand joy.

Onthedeath of UncleAnderson,John inherited thehouse, buthis wife of many decadesdeclared that shewas not prepared to live in themansion becauseitwasuncomfor table, cold and draught y. Sheissued adivorcepetition

Thedivorce was protractedandmessy,but ultimately thejudgedeclared that thehousewas John’s,eventhough it washeldintrust,sohewas unable to sell it,and the significant fundshehadaccumulatedtopayforthe upkeep of thebuildingand it smaintenanceshould go to hiswife.

P P P W W

Patrick bought an estate in Mexico,whichwas his prideand joy. He andhis wife,Mar y, wouldvisit at ever y opportunit yand whenthechildrenwereyoung,theywould take them therefor long holidayswiththeirfriends

Patrick assumed,likesomanyfoundersoffor tuneswith substantialestates,that“happydays” in Mexico would continue forthe family and so heleft theestatetohis wife Mary and threechildren, Matt,Jenand Damien.

Butbythetime Patrick died,his threechildrenwere marriedwith children of theirownand each hadaver y differentattitude to theMexican estate:one wanted to keep it,one wanted to sell it and one wanted to sell part Mary,Patrick ’s widow, was distraughttosee herfamilyso dividedandit pained herthattheycould notbeartobein thesame room,let alone thesame estate

Then,ofcourse, thereisthe trick ytopic of taxation.

Iwas instructed by Mubarakand hiswife, Jane,toreview theownership of theirthree homesin ondon.Heboughthis Mayfairhome20years agoand it hadgainedinvalueby 6 million

Thesecondhomewas in night sbridge, whichhehad

boughtlastyear, and hadnot gained in value, and thethird was in ensington, whichhewasabouttoacquire.

Itold himthatunder United ingdomtax law, therewas arelieffromcapital gainstax at 28 percentonthe gain on a homethatwas amainoronlyresidence,but this relief was only available forpeople whowereresidents in theU.

Mubarakhad twodaughters livingin ondonandhe was happytotransferthe ownership of ahome to each of his daughters, provided they could notsellthem.

If he gavehisMay fair home to hisdaughter, capitalgains taxwould be payable on thegainasifithad beensold at market value. He could,however,keepitand avoid capital gainstax if he still owneditonhis death.

However,the entire valueoftheproper ty would then be subject to inheritance taxat 0percent. This could be avoided if he then lef tthishome to hiswifeintrust

Af terhis death, thehomecould thenbesold,the proceedstaken of fshoreand thetax avoided, since thereis an exemptionfor gift sbetween spousesand forproper ty gif tedwhichisout side theU. ., if thesettlor was non-U. . domiciledatthetime

Theother twohousescould begiven one to each daughter in trust, so they couldnot sell it.Providedhelived sevenyears,notax would be payable on thecapital valueof theproper ties on hisdeath

Taxplanningisstill possible, it is legaland well-wor th doing, butbecareful:mosttax authoritiesacceptsome planning,but notothers.

Thethird area in whichvaluecanbe hemorrhagedoutof homes is inpaying excessivefeesfor their maintenance and upkeep

It is notunusual to see staf foradministrative personnel charge excessivefees, take backhandersfromcontrac tors, steal, or in otherwaystakeadvantage.

This is wheregood governancecomesin.

Good governanceis themonitoring and review of every professionalinvolved in themanagementofeachasset class througheffec tive contrac ts and regularreporting. Donewell, it cansave millions and lead to considerable peaceofmind.

SaddleRi er’sGar ettman re ectsonnearl t reedecadesasNational oc e Lea ueCommissioner

Uponenshrinementinto theHockeyHallofFame as a member of it sClass of 2018, NationalHockey eague NH CommissionerGar yBet tman creditedhis family,friends, league staf f, team owners,players andcoaches forbeingpart of a “collectivecollaboration”that made thehonor possible, saying, “Itcelebrateseverything thatour league,our teamsandour players have accomplished.Itreaffirms my commitmenttothe pursuit of evengreaterexcellence, and it reinforcesmypride in whatwe stand forasa league.”

Nearly four years later, Bettman acknowledges theachievement didn’t sinkinthe nightofthe induction, andstillhasn’t.“I’mstill doing what Ido, soit’llprobably be felt morewhenI retire,” he says Bettman, thelongesttenuredcommissionerinthe four majorAmericanteamsport s, will mark 30 yearsinthe role next season, aprofessionaljourney that beganataNew York City lawfirm andcontinuedinthe league of ficeof theNationalBasketballA ssociation.Asearchcommittee selec ted himfromagroup of fivefinalist stobecome the NH ’s newleague leader.Hetook of ficeonFeb.1,1993. “Noone candreamofbeingcommissionerofaprofessional spor ts league withouthaving theirsanit yinquestion,”he jokes. “Manypeople areinterested, butfew people getit.”

Amonghis greatest achievements is expansion, asthe number ofteamsincreased from 2 to 32on hiswatch, includingseveral franchisesinthe southernpar tofthe United States the result of aconcerted ef fort to widenthe league’s footprint.Revenue hasgrown exponentiallywhile theleagueendured threelabor stoppages and thepublic relationsdif ficulties that came withthem.New television

dealshave broughtNH gamesto larger audiences,and rule changes have allowed players morefreedom to showcasetheirskillsonthe ice.

Going forward, Bettmanhopes to connect with fansthroughbothnew mediaand technology in digitalspaces as wellastraditional media. He also wishes to enhancethe fanexperience at NH arenas.“Ibelievethe in-person experienceatNH gamesisthe best in spor ts,” he says.“Iwant to make surethe gameis competitive andenter taining andmakesureour athletes have achancetoshine.”

Thein-person experiencehas been hindered by theoutbreakofCOVID19,whichhas impacted thepastthree NH seasons.The 2019-2020season wassuspendedindefinitely in March 2020 and resumed inAugustwith expanded StanleyCup playof fs heldin twocentralized “hubcities”inToronto andEdmonton, with no spec tators and only essential staf f present. The2020-2021 seasonwas reduced from 82 to 56 gameswith mostly noat tendance, and cross-border travel restrictions intoCanadaforcedtemporary realignmentas theleagueput allseven Canadian teamsintoone division. Thecurrent seasonhas proceededasnormallyas possible, Bettmansays, though morethan100 gameshave been postponed duetorapid spread of theOmicron variant

“COVID was notsomething anyofuscould have expec ted,” says Bettman. “Our first priority hasalwaysbeen thehealth and safety of ourplayers,staff and fans.” He continues, “It’sthe thirdyear, soit’s no longer anovelt y. The novelt yisthe ways in whichithas impacted uswiththepeaks andvalleysofthevariants.We’re always focused on thelong term butare dealing withtherealities of theshort term.We always have to be exible and have options.

Bettman’shomelifehas provided anicebalance to theups anddowns of hishigh-profilejob.Heand hiswife Shelli movedtoSaddleRiver 25 years ago, finding peaceand quietthathas been helpfulin stressfultimes.The Bettmans raisedthreechildren allof whomaremarried and remaininNor th Jersey and nowenjoy spending time withtheirseven grandchildren

Of hismove to SaddleRiver, Bettmanrecalls,“We were in Rockland

County,N.Y.,atthetime,and wanted moreproper ty,alargerhomeand moreanonymity.” He continues, “ ivingin SaddleRiver makesyou feel like you’re in thecountry,but the accessibility to ever ything in New York City hasmadeitideal.”

He includes Albert’s inHo-Hous, Baumgar t’sCaf inRidgewood, Andrea’s in Waldwick and Savini Restaurant ounge in Allendale amonghisfavoritelocalplaces to dine Bettmanhas guided theNH throughseveral changes since being

elec tedcommissioner, butone thing hasremained aconstant forhim fromdayone the thrill he gets from presenting theStanley Cupannually to theleague’schampion. He says of the oldestexistingtrophytobeawarded to aprofessional spor ts franchise in NorthAmerica,“It is thetoughest trophy to winand themosticonic.The StanleyCup hascharisma. Being that close to it and seeingthe rawemotion as people react to itisthemost rewardingpar tofmyjob.”
