First time posting in this subforum (usually lurk around IB as that's where I'm coming from). I've recently been offered a federal government role in real estate portfolio strategy. Basically advising the government on financing, asset allocation, and releasing their land rights to private investors. Job pays well and the hours are great.
Problem is - I'm sort of coming into this a bit blindfolded. I don't have any RE background and wouldn't know where to start in all honesty. The job does require some modelling which I have exposure to but not from a RE perspective, let alone from a government perspective. Would something of this nature be modelling intensive?
Where can I find tools/info to help me understand a bit more about the government RE space? All the modules I've seen are taken from a REPE and infra fund perspective.
