Private rental sector - A vital part of the future of the real estate market

The shape of the real estate market is changing. The retail sector is in decline and logistics and ‘alternative’ sectors - that is, anything other than office, retail and industrial / logistics – are on the rise. There is a growing interest from institutional investors in the residential market and, in particular, in the private rented sector. 

Large, high-quality, managed apartment blocks in thriving urban areas – so-called ‘winning cities’ – are being acquired by institutions. The growing importance of this sub-sector of the real estate market taps into profound forces of demographic, economic and social change.

Please note that CFA places at this event are now sold out. If you would like to go on the waiting list please email
