As we move into a year of recovery, real estate investors must adapt to the accelerated trends and structural changes to real assets brought about by COVID. Moreover, with thinning liquidity in certain markets, rational pricing lacking and distressed opportunities on the horizon, the risk/reward spectrum might just not be the same as it used to be.

Join Simon Durkin,  Head of European Real Asset Research, Blackrock for a keynote outlook and followed by a candid peer driven conversation of how investors can drive forward capital allocations and adjust risk strategies.
