10:35-11:30 Infra | Where to Go beyond PPP


Panel Discussion

PPP(Public-Private Partnership) assets have been taking center stage in the infrastructure market. Severe yield compression and valuations clearly present a picture of strong demand from investors, while investment opportunities are dwindling, partially due to privatization in many countries in the world. Need for more strategies and perspectives on PPP and what Core Infrastructure assets are. Perhaps beginning with redefining what Core Infrastructure should mean can be a start. We will discuss how and what we should define as Core Infrastructure and the search for an alternative investment to PPP.

Panel Discussion

Though there are conflicting opinions on the direction of the current real estate market, and many investors would agree that with current valuations, this may not be the right time to be buying in the global office market. Yet, we are still witnessing strong liquidity in the market. Where will capital with a lack of clear direction go? Will capital leave the real estate markets or continue move towards other specific regions or sectors? We will discuss new opportunities and strategies, while examining risk factors in the general real estate market.
