INREV – the European Association for Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles – will be hosting its third annual New York seminar on September 20.
The program will focus on issues such as the impact of Brexit on global real estate investment; and the benefits and barriers for US-based investors seeking real estate opportunities in Europe.
Contributors will include leading market participants such as Nick Axford, Global Head of Research, CBRE, Alistair Dryer, Fund Manager, Aviva Investors Real Estate Multi Manager, Barbara Flusk, Senior Partner, Clarion Partners and Udo Schaffer, Head of Real Estate Portfolio Management, E.ON.
Earlier this year, INREV named Neil Harris, Senior Vice President at GIC Real Estate International, as chairman.
Harri is the first representative from a sovereign wealth fund to take the role, which is traditionally filled by an institutional investor.
A Chartered Surveyor with over thirty years’ experience in European real estate, he joined GIC in May 2007, taking responsibility for a team managing a portfolio of direct and indirect investments. Headquartered in Singapore, GIC is one of the world’s leading sovereign wealth funds.
Harris replaced Patrick Kanters, who served a full term of six years. Noel Manns, principal at Europa Capital,also stepped down after six years but will continue to play an active role as Chair of the INREV Fund Manager Advisory Council.
Joining the Management Board are Isabelle Scemama, Head of Funds Group at AXA Investment Managers – Real Assets and CEO of AXA REIM SGP; and Guido Verhoef, Head of Private Real Estate at PGGM.
