At a time of fluctuating government policy and shifting international ties, what does the future hold for UK real estate investment?
The MSCI/IPF Property Investment Conference looks at key issues facing property investors, including the availability of debt finance, changes in pension fund management and the prospects for city performance globally. How can investors adapt to the UK’s changing position in the world economy and the predictability – or otherwise – of political and economic behaviour?
