Brexit - Deliverance or disaster?

Brexit and its implications in the UK economy was the topic of the GRI CLUB meeting held on May 25th in London.

The discussion started by taking a poll among the attendees as to their position on Brexit. Out of the 29 attendees present 5 voted for Leave and 24 voted for Remain. With the referendum only a few weeks ahead, the participants shared their expectations both in terms of the impact of Brexit on the general economy and on the real estate market.

Among the participants, we had: Richard Croft - CEO M7, Aref Lahham - Partner Orion Capital Managers, Kirk Adamson - Principal Blackstone, Anthony Shayle - Head of Global Real Estate - UK Debt - UBS Global Asset Management, Richard Stockton - COO Real Estate CarVal Investors and Christian Thalhammer - Chairman of the Supervisory Board Akron Group.
