Boardroom Briefing hosting Christian Metten, Executive Vice President, Portfolio Management, L&B Core Income Partners.  This presentation is in partnership with AFM Investment Partners

The US Real Estate market has bounced back strongly from the GFC and has been exhibiting some interesting trends. With an ageing population and people delaying marriage and family formation, apartment living is becoming more popular and returns in the Multi-Family sector have consequently boomed and are predicted to continue. Hotels and Warehouses are other sectors that have performed well, for different reasons.

This presentation will focus on:

  • the recent past and outlook for the US Real Estate market and all of the major asset categories within it (Office, Retail, Industrial etc.)
  •  he demographic factors that have been driving the market over the past decade will be discussed
  • likely future trends will also be touched on as well as some of the regional differences that are currently evident in the US Real Estate market.

This Boardroom Briefing will be held on Thursday 11th August in the Boardroom at Finsia in Sydney, between 10-11.30am.
