‘A Traditional World’ - up until recently, a relatively stable and broadly predictable investment market existed, with conventional real estate leases underpinning most assets. However, in recent years Real Estate leases have become shorter, less conventional and less predictable, with shared workspaces in offices, turnover leases in retail, and short term contract driven agreements in logistics.
‘The New Paradigm’ - the implications of COVID–19 have accelerated this change; retailers are demanding new agreements; office users anticipating more homeworking, will require less fixed office space, and more flexibility. In short the real estate market is entering a period of accelerated change. As a result, asset management will become a more dynamic and complex process.
In a series of three webinars we will explore how this change will impact real estate and asset management, strategically, operationally and in the future:
Session 2 - The Operation
- How are the clients’ agendas driving asset management solutions?
- What is the role of technology?
- What are the challenges of managing volatility?
- How and where can value be delivered?
