The Changing Investment Agenda - West Midlands

December 10th 2020


Balancing Commerciality with Social Responsibility & Sustainability

12.30pm - 1.30pm
Non members: £20.00 + VAT = £24.00 / Person. Members: free of charge.

We will explore the prospects for the region, the opportunities for investment and the challenges of getting projects off the ground. The big issue for investors is BALANCING COMMERCIALITY WITH SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY & SUSTAINABILITY.

Movers & Shakers has set out Four Pillars for 2020: SUSTAINABILITY | INCLUSIVITY | SOCIAL VALUES | TECHNOLOGY. These will run through all of our 2020 events.

The panel will look at how investment decisions are now being made. Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) sit at the top of the agenda. Risk now requires more intricate data (the role of technology) and ROI is now viewed in terms of both ethical / social and financial rewards. Have we reached a point where ethical investments deliver better returns than broader real estate investments?

The West Midlands is showing no signs of letting up and is considered to be the UK’s new growth capital; with continued significant economic growth. What will the latest HS2 news mean to the WM’s and the wider region? A record 775,000 sq ft of office space was completed in Birmingham in 2019; the supply is being met with strong demand - 53% of the pipeline is already pre-let. Housing targets remain high and more partnerships and joint ventures are emerging between Government bodies, the Private sector and Housing Associations to meet demand.

This topic comes at a very appropriate time, to ensure the Market delivers with the correct balance between commercial and social responsibility. Join us to get up to speed on the latest thinking in this area.
