Major investors pull business from New York City following Trump verdict.

“Prominent investors have signaled their intent to halt their business in New York following the $355 million verdict in former President Donald Trump’s civil fraud case.

Real estate mogul Grant Cardone announced on Tuesday that his firm Cardone Capital would no longer underwrite New York real estate, one day after Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary vowed to no longer invest in the state as a result of the verdict.

“Immediately discontinue ALL underwriting on New York City real estate,” Cardone ordered his firm in a post on X. “The risk outweigh the opportunities at this time. Recent political decisions will continue to deteriorate price and benefit states that don’t have these challenges. Focus on Texas & Florida.”

The Sell or Be Sold author explained his decision on Wednesday in an interview with Fox & Friends.

“When that [Trump] ruling happened, it was like, ‘Pencils down,’” Cardone said. “‘Don’t touch it. Don’t go there.’”

Judge Arthur Engoron ruled on Friday that Trump must pay over $355 million for conspiring to alter his net worth to receive tax and insurance benefits. Engoron’s verdict additionally bars Trump and his sons, Eric and Donald Jr., from doing business in New York for three years.

“We invest for 14,000 investors at Cardone Capital that depend on cash flow,” Cardone said. “And if I can’t predict the cash flow because of some ruling, or because of the migrants, or because I can’t evict people, New York City just keeps doing every single thing they can to sell real estate in Florida, not sell real estate in New York.””
