08:00 Networking & Snacks
08:30 Panel discussion – German real estate market
10:00 -11:00 Coffee & Networking

Discussion points:

  • Germany’s RE transaction volume is expected to exceed €50bn again this year. What makes the German market so attractive?
  • What are the asset classes to focus on in Germany at the moment? Traditional and alternatives.
  • Yields are reaching low levels and competition is fierce in Germany’s biggest markets, should investors consider opportunities in B- and C-cities? Are these markets liquid enough for international investors?
  • Why is the German residential market so dominated by German players? Is this changing?
  • What does Germany’s development pipeline look like?
  • Are we seeing a shift in capital, especially from Asian institutions? Are Asian institutional investors looking at opportunities in Germany instead of London because of Brexit?
