Global Property Forum 2019

In association with Atchison Consultants, the [i3] Global Property Forum will cover property portfolio construction and risk management for institutional investors.

Investing in Property as an Asset Class

The secular changes in the investment environment, coupled with late cycle concerns, have prompted investors to diversify away from reliance on the equity risk premium and fixed income returns, while securing stable income and building inflation protection. This has strengthened the case for increased exposure to investing in property as an asset class.

Complementing the domestic portfolio, global property is a potential source of income, capital appreciation or diversification.

Portfolio Construction & Risk

Investors need to be cognizant of the portfolio construction objectives encompassing risk tolerance, illiquidity as well as other financing and structural constraints. Furthermore, each property sub-asset class also contains varying risk/return characteristics that impact the overall portfolio diversification.

This includes understanding the liquidity vs complexity opportunity set for:

  • Local vs Global Property
  • REITS vs Unlisted/Direct
  • Geography vs Sectors
  • Debt vs Equity

In particular, we will examine unique global property opportunities, particularly in unlisted/direct assets, in sub-sectors such as multi-family; industrial and logistics and other specialist sectors.

Overlaying the broad issues will be technology disruption and ESG matters.
