UK CRE debt for Asian investors and lenders

14 November 2016 @ 08:00 - 12:30

          A complimentary CREFC Europe workshop in association with RICS

By invitation only 

Timing: Monday 14 November 2016, 08.00 registration, 08.30 start, finish by 12.30

In pursuit of CREFC Europe’s goal of making European CRE debt more accessible for investors, borrowers and new entrants, we have designed an informative half-day programme specifically for CRE debt investors from Asia, to be held on the morning of Monday 14 November, just before CREFC Europe’s Autumn Conference 2016.  The focus will be on understanding and accessing opportunities in the UK CRE debt market, and will address specific issues relevant to investors from Asia. Our speakers (details below) will cover the following:

  • An overview of UK economic and CRE market developments (Simon Rubinsohn, RICS)
  • The size, structure and evolution of the market (Hans Vrensen, CREFC Europe)
  • Returns analysis and risk outlook following the Brexit vote (Emma Huepfl, Laxfield Capital)
  • Legal overview: structuring, technical and practical issues for overseas investors (Andrew Carnegie, Clifford Chance)

We are grateful to Clifford Chance for sponsoring this programme, allowing us to make it free to attend.  A limited number of passes are available per organisation, and strict limits apply to the total number of attendees.  Please register your interest in the half-day programme by contacting Carol at CREFC Europe. 

Attendees are offered the additional benefit of a special discount on the normal cost of registering for the CREFC Europe Autumn Conference which takes place immediately after this programme.  The conference attracts many of the leading participants in European CRE debt markets with a variety of highly informative sessions that will deepen your understanding of the asset class and offer outstanding networking opportunities.  Contact Carol Wilkie on site on Monday 14 November.
