After a short stint with the St. Louis Rams in 1997, Mr. Locker began his career on Wall Street in 1998 working with Fidelity. Mr. Locker specialized in Relative Value strategies and discovered incredible success with the public homebuilders. Mr. Locker officially began his Housing Analyst career in 2004 by covering residential homebuilding. Joel earned his Chartered Financial Analyst designation in 2006 to add merit to his growing success as an analyst with his negative outlook on housing prior to the downturn. Mr. Locker posted 24% annualized returns trading the housing stocks discretionary for an Institutional Client from 2005 to 2012. The coinciding period yielded a -7% annualized return in the S+P Homebuilding Index. Joel was ranked the #1 Homebuilder Analyst out of 20 on Bloomberg in 2014 while working at FBN Securities as their Senior Housing Analyst. More importantly Joel has spent thousands of hours becoming proficient on the macroeconomic side of housing, which propelled his success as an analyst over the last decade. Furthermore, Joel has focused on Senior Housing since 2014 dedicating his time creating an Independent Living product which is affordable for the consumer yet yields best in breed return ratios for investors. Joel’s knowledge of demographics/housing data will aid in business development and target submarkets in which Senior Housing is underserved.
