An environment of unprecedented capital flows and rising valuations in real estate has significant implications for evaluating opportunities and navigating risk. Highly competitive global property markets present challenges to deal-makers, investors and advisors, and real estate CFOs are confronted with an ever-expanding scope of issues that need to be addressed.
The hurdles are broad and diverse—from valuation and taxation to debt and leverage—and they vary widely by market and sector. Fund managers demand attractive returns, while investors are increasingly rigorous in their due diligence.
Managing the finance, operations and performance of a real estate fund has become more challenging today than ever before. In a business where knowledge is power and the competition for deals is increasing, it’s critical to stay informed.
