An AFIRE Virtual Event (Members Only)
Tuesday, June 16, 2020, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM HKT
Monday, June 15, 2020, 9:00 PM – 10:00 PM ET
While transaction activity began apace in January, the COVID-19 crisis upended plans and expectations in all parts of the world. And now, as countries begin to reopen borders and restart their economies, real estate 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-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?
Register now to join the discussion on the future of Asian investment in US real estate.

ABOUT AFIRE VIRTUAL EVENTS
Launched in early 2020 as part of AFIRE’s membership events program, AFIRE Virtual Events provide a recurring digital format for AFIRE members to stay connected beyond in-person meetings.
The weekly, members-only, town hall-style meetings are simple 60-minute, discussion-style sessions (hosted on BlueJeans), with AFIRE member panelists and presenters talking about current trends and ideas in an accessible, conversational format. We recommend you join via a Google Chrome Browser or download the BlueJeans event app.
Other special virtual events, outside the weekly scheduled, focus on specialized and timely topics, as well as supporting ongoing education and research.
AFIRE Virtual Events are recorded and made available for members only.
