12th Real Estate Private Equity Summit

Download Brochure

About The Conference

As we shift from recovery to expansion, the U.S. remains a shining star in the global real estate marketplace. While market fundamentals are solid, increasingly aggressive capital markets are increasing risk. Tremendous capital inflow from overseas sovereign wealth funds is creating a liquidity premium in the primary markets, and pushing many U.S. investors to search for yield in new regions and property types. At the same time, the use of space is changing in almost every asset class. iGlobal Forum’s 12th Real Estate Private Equity Summit on March 3rd & 4th in New York will address the global macro-economic drivers of real estate value and capital flows, and will analyze what they mean for U.S. real estate investors. The summit will exclusively gather over 200 senior-level representatives from leading real estate private equity firms, pension plans, endowments, foundations, family offices, insurance companies, investment banks, distressed debt firms, real estate asset managers, consultants, owners and developers.

Key Topics Covered

  • The outlook for global real estate allocations and demand for U.S. real estate equity opportunities
  • Unlocking the value in alternative property types
  • Identifying opportunities and minimizing risk when investing in secondary markets
  • Understanding and reacting to changing uses of space
  • How the capital markets are driving transactional activity in the real estate market
