Atlantic Partners' Bradley Olsen Returns to Campus to Discuss International Real Estate

Posted By Maria-Elena Svigos, Blue Vista Capital Management, Thursday, February 7, 2019


Bradley Olsen, President of Atlantic Partners, returned to the Graaskamp Center early this week to discuss international real estate with a group of MBA and undergraduate students. Mr. Olsen has been a friend of the Wisconsin Real Estate program for over 35 years, making his first visit to campus in the early 1980’s, and has continued his relationship with students and faculty ever since. Mr. Olsen left corporate life to start his own real estate investment company and has a simple business model: “invest in wherever I want to be, work with people I trust and respect, and create projects that I’m interested in.” With a vast knowledge of international real estate, politics, and geo-economics, Mr. Olsen described Atlantic Partners as an intermediary in the movement of capital between North America and Europe.


Mr. Olsen presented about the current state of Europe’s real estate industry, strong-performing countries and sectors that are “hot” throughout the continent. He touched on current topics such as Brexit, French elections, migration amongst the continent and decreasing interest rates. He raised questions to the students about where they see international trends heading and encouraged them to consider global real estate in their career paths.


A small group of Graaskamp MBA’s will be attending the MIPIM conference in Cannes, France this upcoming March and these students agreed that Mr. Olsen prepared them well for their international travels. They were excited to have Bradley Olsen back on campus and look forward to his next visit.
