Evelyn Lee, Robert-Jan Foortse , Andrea Orlandi, Jose Pellicer, Neil Slater

The shape of the economic recovery in Europe is a question that cuts to the centre of where to invest in real estate over the short-to-medium term. In this scene-setting session we hear from experts and industry participants on how they are looking at Europe in terms of expected demand across sectors, whether debt or equity plays make for sense right now, the implication of a continued low interest rate environment and how real estate stand ups to other asset classes as a home for capital in the aftermath of covid-19.

Daniel Cunningham, Philippe Deloffre, Cyril Hoyaux, Christian Janssen, Simon Uiterwijk

The pandemic and its economic impact has arguably made debt a safer investment than equity given the downside protection it offers. In this session we dive into the outlook for the real estate finance market in Europe and look to understand how alternative and traditional lenders are adjusting their strategies to the new market conditions. The panel will touch to how borrower relations have fared during the pandemic, where alternative lenders are seeing opportunities emerging, how to overcome challenges in underwriting niche, emerging sub asset classes such as life sciences, and get an investor’s perspectives on what role debt will play in their real estate portfolio going forward.

Economic uncertainty and market dislocation remain a concern across the US, yet studies show institutions continue to find opportunities in the private real estate asset class. Panelists will address how demographic shifts are shaping investor demands and city rankings; the strategies and sectors where investors are looking to deploy capital, and if this activity will be enough to bolster hard-hit areas. Other topics include how investors can capitalize on market dislocation; how today’s crisis compares with the Global Financial Crisis, and whether the “lessons learned” from the GFC can be implemented in today’s recovery.
