Larry Roth, Chief Executive Officer of Realty Capital Securities, stated, "We believe that growth of the direct investment industry can be traced to a number of factors, including improvements in industry best practices and investor understanding of the positive attributes of alternative investments, including current income and low correlation to broader traded markets. As the leader in the direct investment industry, RCS strives to be continually focused on how to meet the needs of independent broker-dealers and the financial advisor community and strives to place investors first."
