Morning Seminar

Outlook for Real Estate Finance in Europe

Wednesday 24 January

Host Sponsor

Free to CREFC Europe members.

The Outlook for the European Real Estate (RE) Market will explore the current state of the property market in Europe and consider the relative market risks of the major countries and cities in 2018 from a lenders perspective.

The speakers will identify the economic and real estate trends that the industry should look out for in the coming year.  The first presentation, from an experienced economist, will address the main economic influences effecting Europe and the outlook for employment, output, inflation and interest rates: when will the ECB aim to normalise monetary policy, what will determine the path of interest rates, what will be the impact of the rise in the Euro on European trade and of course Brexit, how can the risks be quantified?

This will be followed by a real estate market presentation looking at the prospects for individual countries and cities and identifying the risks from a lenders perspective: are all European real estate markets now over-priced, will rents grow in 2018 and, what will happen to property cap rates if interest rates rise?

Following the presentations panellists will debate the implications of the economic and property market outlook on their strategy in 2018 and identify the non-economic and market drivers of their strategy.
