THE CHANGING INVESTMENT AGENDA - SOUTH WEST breakfast event will explore the prospects for the region and the opportunities for investment. The big issues for investors are BALANCING COMMERCIALITY WITH SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY / SUSTAINABILITY and WHAT HAS CHANGED THROUGH THE PANDEMIC. Whereas, one could argue at the start of 2020, that the balance had tipped in favour of the ethical / sustainable investments, and in fact the latter was starting to drive better commercial returns; COVID-19 has muddied the Market somewhat.

The panel will look at how investment decisions are now being made. Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) still sits high on the agenda. Risk now requires more intricate data (the role of technology) and ROI is now viewed in terms of both ethical / social financial rewards and both can be quantitatively measured.

The South West is a buoyant Marketplace and Bristol is considered to be one of the UK’s “economic hotspots”. The SW poses a good choice for investment across the Real Estate spectrum. Workloads have been good and the SW appears set to pick up and continue its 2019 / early 2020 growth trends, across all sectors. Housing targets are clearly big and more partnerships and joint ventures are emerging between government bodies, the private sector and housing associations, to meet demand.

The breakfast and topic comes at a very appropriate time, to discuss and debate driving investment, balancing commercial and social responsibility; whilst recovering from a Global pandemic.

Join as to get up to speed on the latest thinking on these topics!
