AFIRE Virtual Event: Asia-Pacific Investors Summit

Online, October 27, 2020


Tuesday, October 27, 2020, 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM HKT
Monday, October 26, 2020, 9:00 PM – 10:30 PM ET

As countries continue fighting the war against COVID-19, investors are seeking potential opportunities in all sectors—especially between Asia and the US.

In this special AFIRE virtual event, panelists will explore the pathways and strategies for international and Asia-Pacific-based investors to approach the US property market. What are the opportunities, and what is the optimal timing?

Experts will discuss the key indicators for distress, opportunity, and risk—including those introduced by continued economic, political, and trade uncertainties. What will be the structural changes in office, hospitality, and retail that will impact investment horizons? What is the state of debt pricing, availability, and leverage in US capital markets?

This event is open to all members and invited guests.
