High-Net-Worth Members Gain Insights From Top Thought Leaders and Member Networks

New York, NY –  TIGER 21, the premier peer membership organization for high-net-worth wealth creators, has concluded its inaugural Global Exchange virtual conference. This event, formerly known as the TIGER 21 Annual Conference – is the first of a series of Global Exchanges to be held this year — showcasing a series of panels and experiences to bring together the TIGER 21 community, empowering Members to learn from industry professionals and interact with fellow Members in newly-created Networks on topics of common interest.

TIGER 21’s Global Exchange provided its more than 850 Members an exclusive opportunity to learn from top experts in their respective fields. The discussions yielded actionable takeaways for attendees, with prominent topics covered in Networks on the topics of real estate, philanthropy, investment, health and wellness, travel, golf, and wine and spirits.

“Over the last year, our community has faced one of the biggest global crises we have seen in the 22 years since I founded TIGER 21. It has been truly remarkable to see TIGER 21 pivot to make the best of the situation, and actually develop new forms of interaction and communication that will not only continue after the pandemic, but make our offering more compelling,” said Michael Sonnenfeldt, Founder and Chairman of TIGER 21.  “Our inaugural Global Exchange event gave us the opportunity to congregate around common areas of interest in our internal Member Networks such as real estate, philanthropy, and health and wellness.”

“Covering a vast spectrum of disciplines, the Global Exchange serves as a platform for Members to spend time together so they can engage and learn from profound thought leaders and, most importantly, each other,” said Timothy F. Daniels, President and CEO of TIGER 21. “Over the course of two days, TIGER 21 Members were able to lean in and leverage this ecosystem of more than 850 extraordinary entrepreneurs and other wealth creators in an exchange of ideas to become better in the aspects of their lives that are most important and valuable to them and they can continue these discussions in the Networks on our new Member portal – T21 Connect.” 

Hamilton star and Tony and Grammy Award-winning performer, Leslie Odom, Jr., addressed TIGER 21 Members to explore the current state of the entertainment industry and what audiences can expect when conditions begin to normalize. This keynote session was moderated by Peter Marks, The Washington Post theater critic.

Senior Managing Director and Global Co-head of Blackstone Real Estate, Kathleen McCarthy, led a real estate discussion, which covered trends in commercial, industrial, and residential real estate, including the effects of the pandemic on the market.
