The Annual Property Funds Industry Forum is one of the longest running annual events in the Australian property industry and attracts delegates and speakers of the highest calibre to provide an informed and well considered opinion on the sector. This conference creates an environment for forming new relationships, networking with industry leaders and decision makers. Sessions are intended to pave the way for decision making into the future rather than dwell on past events.
The theme for the 2018 event held in October 2018 was “Surviving the asset bubble contagion”. Changes impacting the sector are multi-fold: innovation through new technology; impact of the Financial Services Royal Commission; political unrest and reshaping of cross border trade; and the threat of a rising discount rate that plays no favourite to any asset class. Our programme was designed to specifically provide delegates with some solutions to navigate through this unusual investment environment.
The feedback from attending delegates was excellent and that most of them would be returning to attend the 2019 event. While the weather gods played spoilsport with heavy rain, the high calibre of speakers and the interactive sessions more than compensated for the weather. A copy of the full agenda can be accessed here.
Award winners for 2018 were:
- A-REIT of the Year - Charter Hall Group
- Unlisted Property Fund of the Year - GDI No.43 Property Trust
While the conference remains a cornerstone event, the team have been busy building on our research across the listed and unlisted property sectors which is available from our website at www.coreprop.com.au.
Thank you to all our Sponsors for their support and the team at Core Property look forward to seeing you at our next event in 2019.
