External Keynote Presentation: Political Risk and Uncertainty - What they Mean for Financial Markets
Recent fundamental political change has brought leaders and ideas that are far more illiberal, interventionist and arbitrary. From a political risk perspective, we’re adjusting to the most advanced economies acting more like emerging market economies. They are less predictable. Perhaps more important in the long run, we are witnessing an attack on the post-war, liberal world order crafted by the US and Europe, which underpinned a rules-based, multilateral trading and economic system based on shared values and interests. Growth in those same economies is slowing down while inequality looks set to deepen. In this environment - one major theme dominates all others: uncertainty. And one major question for markets: does any of it matter?

U.S. Real Estate In A Global Context
Looking at its latest global performance data, MSCI investigates the state of real estate markets at home and abroad. What can we learn about how the latter stages of the real estate cycle are shaping up, and how do the drivers of returns differ from region to region?

Establishing A Performance Culture Across The Global Enterprise
As real estate investment becomes increasingly international, global real estate management organisations have emerged to implement these strategies. But given that such firms have often brought together a raft of regional operations, how can the management challenges of this integration – in particular those relating to measuring performance – be overcome?

2019 Emerging Real Estate Trends
For real estate investors, 2019 may be a year of adjusting to rapid changes arising from a variety of sources, including environmental, social and governance-related (ESG) risks; geopolitical uncertainty; and disruptive technology. Robson discusses the five emerging real estate trends we view as most likely to impact our clients’ investment decisions over the next 12 months and beyond.

Disruptive Technology and Real Estate Investment
In this keynote presentation, Shepard describes some of the digital techniques and technologies that are changing the way data can be harvested and harnessed to transform investment strategies and operations.
