Study Questions 1. For what debt in a general partnership is each of the general partners liable? Solution : General partners have unlimited liability and are liable for all debts of the partnership. This includes contractual debts and debts resulting from tort actions against the partnership. General partners are also jointly and severally liable for wrongful acts committed by other partners in the course of the partnership’s business. Therefore, the personal assets of the general partners are subject to the claims of the partnership’s creditors. 2. Why are many pension funds reluctant to invest in commercial real estate? Solution : Pension funds have historically viewed real estate as too risky, difficult to manage, and illiquid. Addtionally, the lack of available information for performing quantitative investment analysis has also contributed to the reluctance of pension funds to invest in real estate. 3. Discuss the role life insurance companies play in financing commercial real estate. Solution : Given the long-term nature of their liabilities, life insurance companies prefer to invest in assets on a long-term basis. They are a major source of commercial real estate capital and are heavily involved in the long-term commercial mortgage market.
