Inflation and high interest rates. A disrupted global economy and uncertain geopolitical conditions. The real estate investment environment is facing a big challenge. Many real estate markets in Europe are suffering, and Italy is no exception.
Investment volumes in 2023 are at a historical low. But, as always, there are winners and losers in the real estate market and distress offers opportunities. Capital raising for real estate investments is becoming increasingly difficult, but not impossible. So why invest in real estate when even the German Bundesobligationen offer superior returns?
The 2023 edition of Quo Vadis Italy looks at the challenges and opportunities of investing in real estate in a climate of uncertainty and concern. Leading individuals from international real estate investors, asset managers and financial institutions will share their views on the international and Italian real estate market in 2023 and beyond.
Registration: 14:30 – 15:00 CET
Conference: 15:00 – 18:30 CET
Cocktail: 18:30 – 20:00 CET
Attendance for this event is by invitation only.
The event will be in-person (no streaming services will be provided).
