 2nd Real Estate Private Equity Summit: Europe
Date: September 23, 2014
Location: Millennium Hotel London Mayfair

Organized By:
iGlobal Forum
www.iglobalforum.com

Description:  iGlobal Forum is pleased to announce the 2nd Real Estate Private Equity Summit: Europe, which will take place on 23rd September in London. As the economy shows signs of recovery, domestic and overseas investors are moving back into European real estate private equity. But the shape of the market and the nature of the risks involved are changing. There is markedly less demand for long-term capital flows, and many investors are scrutinising their managers with intensive due diligence. Increased competition and impending regulatory developments are creating a shift in the debt markets, and with so much liquidity chasing limited supply, many managers are looking to peripheral markets to deliver returns.

The 2nd Real Estate Private Equity Summit: Europe will offer an in-depth understanding into the trends that are affecting pricing, the role that leverage should play in your real estate investments, and in which regions and asset classes you will find the best risk-adjusted returns. Join us and network with senior-level representatives from the real estate industry's largest investors, private equity firms, asset managers, hedge funds, investment banks, distressed debt firms, lawyers, investment consultants, owners and developers.
