Institutional capital continues to pour into the European market, despite widespread economic, political, and macro concerns. The question we’re hearing most often right now is if the current demand for commercial real estate will continue into 2019. While we don’t have a crystal ball, our panelists will consider the impact of continued political uncertainty and rising interest rates on the European market – and try to provide their best analysis of what could happen in the coming year.
Discussion points will include:
08:30 Networking & Snacks
09:00 Panel discussion
