Wednesday, 26 August 2020 | 4PM HKT (UTC+8)
As COVID-19 continues to weigh on the global economy, the impact on real estate investment is just beginning to emerge. In this session, a panel comprised of private equity and institutional investors will explore how fund strategies are changing as a result. With the market still awash in liquidity, what strategies are LPs looking for? Open or closed-ended? Core, opportunistic, or value-add? Is there interest in M&A and public-to-private deals, and what types of opportunities are available? What are the consequences of growing demand for ESG compliance? And how are China’s increasingly fractious international relationships affecting LP and GP mandates?
Credit markets and NPLs
Wednesday, 23 September 2020 | 4PM HKT (UTC+8)
With solvency now a growing concern for both occupiers and developers, we look at the implications for Asia Pacific markets. Will distress finally come of age as an investment strategy? If so, what are the latest trends in distressed structuring – equity, debt, M&A, sale and leaseback, or platform deals? Finally, as credit risk rises, how are banks tightening access to debt? Our expert panel includes members from both side of the financing divide.
Niche Asset Classes
Wednesday, 28 October 2020 | 4PM HKT (UTC+8)
Excess liquidity, rising asset prices, and ongoing yield compression have been catalysts for interest in niche asset classes for several years. But with investors now increasingly risk averse, will they continue to draw investment dollars? In this webinar we look at how the popular niches are weathering the storm: are co-working, co-living, data centres, self storage, and student housing retaining their appeal? And which areas have emerged as winners and losers?
Hospitality and the Future of Travel
Wednesday, 25 November 2020 | 4PM HKT (UTC+8)
With international travel still at a standstill, investors across the globe are now reassessing the viability of the hospitality industry as a going concern. While some have sworn off hotel assets altogether, others see potential for bottom fishing. But do depressed prices really offer good value? Will business travel ever return to previous levels? And does the current turmoil provide opportunity to reshape the future of hospitality in ways that are more sustainable? In this webinar, a panel of leading executives from across the region discuss the sector’s prospects.
