The Annual Property Funds Industry Forum is among one of the longest running annual events within the Australian property industry, attracting delegates and speakers of the very best calibre to supply an informed and well considered outlook on the sector.
The theme for the 2019 event was “On all things CORE”. CORE is the bedrock of the property funds industry where Capital, Opportunities, Risks, and Expectations, pretty much dominate boardroom discussions. At the same time, changes impacting the sector are multi-fold; innovation through new technology, political unrest, reshaping of cross border trade, disruptive business environments, and other structural and financial considerations.
By all accounts, the 2019 Forum delivered yet again on its objectives and covered a wide range of perspectives from high calibre speakers and panel members. Some of the topics covered included macro-economic themes in Australia and globally, product distribution in a new realm post FOFA and the Royal Commission, investor sentiment and fund manager target markets and sectors, the rise of shared office space and co-working, and several other perspectives relevant to the property funds industry.
