  • Prospects of a sustainable recovery Recorded: Sep 30 2020 88 mins
    Henrik Kruse, Craig Mackenzie, Piet Klop, Peter Sandahl, Louise Jørring Gev, Sean Gilbert, Jesper Kirstein
    With an unparalleled emphasis on sustainable investing these days, it appears that we, as an industry, are at a juncture where it is no longer a question of “why” or “when” to do it. The question is “how” to do it, measure it and report on it, in both liquid and illiquid asset classes.

    During this seminar we looked to explore and debate the practicalities related to some of the major challenges the world is facing (climate change, the social inequality gap, unsustainable production and consumption to name a few) with attention centred on implementation. In order to shed light on and debate these topics, we invited a number of highly respected guest speakers to share their experiences and views.
  • Real Estate: Shopping through Covid-19 and beyond Recorded: Sep 10 2020 28 mins
    Anne Breen, Graham Porter & Kerri Hunter
    The growth of e-commerce over recent years has weighed heavily on retail real estate. A pandemic and the unprecedented locking down of consumers have provided the strongest possible push factor towards even greater adoption of e-commerce. For many previously reticent consumers, a psychological barrier has been breached. And for many retail assets around the world, the process of price discovery to reflect the impact of this structural change is only just beginning.

    Our panel of experts discuss this topic and address investors’ concerns:

    Anne Breen, Global Head of Real Estate Investment Process & Strategy
    Graham Porter, Head of UK Real Estate Investment Research
    Kerri Hunter, Fund Manager
