As the economy shows signs of recovery, domestic and overseas investors are moving back into European real estate private equity. But the shape of the market and nature of the risks involved are changing. There is markedly less demand for long-term capital flows, and many investors are scrutinizing their managers with intensive due diligence. Increased competition and impending regulatory developments are creating a shift in the debt markets, and with so much liquidity chasing limited supply, many managers are looking to peripheral markets to deliver returns. This summit will offer an in-depth understanding into trends that are affecting pricing, the role that leverage should play in your real estate investments, and in which regions and asset classes you will find the best risk-adjusted returns.
Join us and network with senior-level representatives from the real estate industry’s largest investors, private equity firms, asset managers, hedge funds, investment bankers, distressed debt firms, lawyers, investment consultants, owners and developers.
