Testimonial about the Course

“I enjoyed the course and think that it clearly illustrated the value of the asset manager in the fund and investor environment. The strategies and processes we discussed will help me in my role to align the strategies at a property level with the overall goals of the funds. I recommend this for anyone involved in real estate investment on a multi-property scale.”
Adam Rosenfeld, CBRE Global Investors (Taiwan) Ltd.

“I find The ULI Asset Management Workshop a valuable experience. The topics discussed were well chosen, the instructor was articulate and lively in the sessions, and the materials taught were well organized in its delivery. I learned a lot even though I have been in the industry for quite a number of years.”
Albert Chan, Shui On Land

“To my opinion, the workshop was comprehensive and covered sufficiently on key topics. The major speaker (Roger Staiger) was both a practitioner and an academic who could bring both sides of thoughts to the workshop. Other speakers came from MGPA Asset Management and JLL who could share their helpful practical experiences. Most of the participants came from both foreign and Hong Kong developers, property investment company and insurance company.”
Benny Hui, ING Real Estate
