International Outlook – EXPO REAL 2019
Where is the growth in international investment coming from, what global trends are we seeing? EXPO REAL recently captured thoughts from international players about the global outlook. At this stage in the cycle we hear how investors are looking for structural themes rather than cyclical. Global investors are aiming to diversify their investments with increasing use of European platforms, helped by low vacancy rates and liquidity. A strong theme emerged around the cradle to grave opportunities: nurseries, student housing, co-living/working and senior housing. We hear how this trend is powered increasingly by companies providing flexible products, with a strong digital vision.
The UK Outlook – EXPO REAL 2019
The UK is facing a change in its relationship with the European Union. EXPO REAL recently hosted with Nuveen a wide ranging debate in London and captured views of the public and private sector on the outlook for the UK, Foreign Direct Investment and Capital Flows. We looked at where the opportunities are within the UK market for investment, exploring the growth sectors as well as regional opportunities. With short term disruption providing opportunity, increased regional liquidity, the importance of logistics and multi-let industrial and an target of 300,000 new homes per year the debate shone a light on investible propositions.
Solutions for Housing Shortage - EXPO REAL 2019
Affordable housing is currently one of the predominant issues in the property industry and in politics––and has a fixed place in the conference program of EXPO REAL. There is no easy solution, everyone involved is called upon to act. Rent regulation, assignment of new land for housing developments or simplified planning and building processes: there are many proposals, some rather radical, such as the call for the expropriation of housing stock owned by large companies. EXPO REAL has captured some expert views on this subject in Berlin.
EXPO REAL 2018: the real estate industry & geopolitics
Ten years after the high point of the financial crisis, its effects on the real estate industry continue to be felt: high property prices, low interest rates, high investment pressure and low returns on investment.
But the industry is doing well. It has evolved and has become more international and more digital. Sensitivity to the uncertainties of the global market remains omnipresent, however–also at EXPO REAL 2018, the biggest real estate industry get-together in Europe.
