The East-West Property Knowledge Bridge

The last meeting in 2014 of the Asia Capital Club launched by Property Investor Europe and international advisor DTZ, takes place on Tuesday 26 November in London. It will start with short presentations by DTZ and ACC supporting partners, providing investment assessments for pan-Europe in the short to medium term. These are designed to assist Asian members of ACC in their judgment of value, opportunity and risk.

Many Asian members are new to pan-Europe even if they know London and UK better. This closed-door forum is designed to bring Asian capital allocators and European real estate specialists together three times yearly in confidential discussions to exchange views and bridge the East-West knowledge gap. It will foster relationships and exchange information so that Asian investors who may be new, especially, to pan-Europe can benefit from the knowledge of European specialists.

The 90-minute in-the-round discussion, as always, will remain confidential so that sponsors and guests can freely exchange views. PIE will sum up general conclusions in a blog but will not cite detailed, attributable opinion.

ENTRY FEE: PIE Premium subscribers €275. Standard entry fee €495 (plus 20% VAT)
