    Investment Strategy
    Wednesday, 26 August 2020 | 4PM HKT (UTC+8)
    (Past webinar)

    As COVID-19 continues to weigh on the global economy, the impact on real estate investment is just beginning to emerge. In this session, a panel comprised of private equity and institutional investors will explore how fund strategies are changing as a result. With the market still awash in liquidity, what strategies are LPs looking for? Open or closed-ended? Core, opportunistic, or value-add? Is there interest in M&A and public-to-private deals, and what types of opportunities are available? What are the consequences of growing demand for ESG compliance? And how are China’s increasingly fractious international relationships affecting LP and GP mandates?
    Discussion Leaders:
    Rushabh Desai, Chief Executive Officer, Allianz Real Estate Asia Pacific
    Louise Kavanagh, Managing Director, Nuveen Real Estate
    Ng Chiang Ling, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Office, M&G Real Estate Asia
    Justin Wai, Managing Director, Real Estate, Blackstone

    Credit markets and NPLs
    Wednesday, 23 September 2020 | 4PM HKT (UTC+8)
    (Past webinar)

    With solvency now a growing concern for both occupiers and developers, we look at the implications for Asia Pacific markets. Will distress finally come of age as an investment strategy? If so, what are the latest trends in distressed structuring – equity, debt, M&A, sale and leaseback, or platform deals? Finally, as credit risk rises, how are banks tightening access to debt? Our expert panel includes members from both side of the financing divide.

    Discussion Leaders:
    Jinglei Chen, Managing Director & Founding Member, BEI Capital
    David Ellis, Partner, Mayer Brown
    Joyce Liang, Managing Director & Head of Asia Pacific Credit Research, BofAML
    Bryan Southergill, Managing Director, Real Estate, KKR

    Niche Asset Classes
    Wednesday, 28 October 2020 | 4PM HKT (UTC+8)
    (Past webinar)

    Excess liquidity, rising asset prices, and ongoing yield compression have been catalysts for interest in niche asset classes for several years. But with investors now increasingly risk averse, will they continue to draw investment dollars? In this webinar we look at how the popular niches are weathering the storm: are co-working, co-living, data centres, self storage, and student housing retaining their appeal? And which areas have emerged as winners and losers?
    Discussion Leaders:
    Brian Chinappi, Partner, Head of Asia Real Estate, Actis
    Brandon Li, Principal, Shanghai, Warburg Pincus
    Susheela Rivers, Office Managing Partner, Co-Chair, Global Real Estate Sector and Head of Real Estate Asia Pacific, DLA Piper
    Skip Schwartz, Managing Director, Private Real Estate Equity, Asia Pacific, Heitman

    Hospitality and the Future of Travel
    Wednesday, 25 November 2020 | 4PM HKT (UTC+8)

    With international travel still at a standstill, investors across the globe are now reassessing the viability of the hospitality industry as a going concern. While some have sworn off hotel assets altogether, others see potential for bottom fishing. But do depressed prices really offer good value? Will business travel ever return to previous levels? And does the current turmoil provide opportunity to reshape the future of hospitality in ways that are more sustainable? In this webinar, a panel of leading executives from across the region discuss the sector’s prospects.
    Discussion Leaders:
    Maria Ariizumi, Head of Development, Swire Hotels
    Suzee Brain, Director & Co-Owner, Brain & Poulter
    Kevin Colket, Founder & CEO, Global Hospitality Investment Group (GHIG)
    Jayson Goh, Managing Director, Airport Operations Management, Changi Airport
