Have real estate lenders lost their appetite for risk? Right now, finding partners to fund value add and opportunistic projects looks a lot like searching for a needle in a haystack. Given the lack of visibility in risk and pricing in the European and global real estate markets, getting lenders’ confidence back on track seems difficult. How can investors rationalise value add pricing and deal structures?

This eMeeting will gather GRI Club Members active in the European Opportunistic and Value Add markets to forecast transaction and investment landscapes and how to underwrite their deals in a post-COVID society.

Discussion will touch on:
  • Value Add Market in Europe - How to identify future projects and ensure their quality and profit?
  • Rates & Yields - When and how can we ensure profitability of those deals?
  • Market Attractivity - Where does Europe stand against the US and Asia?
  • Private Equity - Dry powder impact on risk and price anticipation?
  • Banks' Appetite & Lending Confidence - Why does the crisis impact banks' involvement in opportunistic and value add projects? 
  • Asset Conversions & Managing to Core - Solution to rise up yields in what and where?
  • Forward Funding & Refinancing the only way forward?
