Private, collegial conversations reserved only for GRI Chairmen’s Retreat Members (immediate No.1 or 2 in command of significant real estate organisations) and their invited guests.
We convene on the last Friday of each month to discuss frankly pricing, disruptive and structural demands on real estate across all assets, risk profiles and regions, in a living format with a bunch of friends.
The agenda for each meeting is set and curated by our Retreat Constituents, to keep the focus on the challenges and opportunities on a peer level.

During his tenure, he was involved in sourcing, executing, and overseeing more than €4 billion of transactions across Europe.
Joan holds a BA (UB, Barcelona), and an MBA-MIM (ESADE, Barcelona).
The Group’s underlying strategy is focussed on long-term, sustainable growth, with an emphasis on Shaping Future Places®, that our occupiers, partners and the wider community can embrace as their own.
Our consistent track record is underpinned by our experience in the acquisition, development and management of Real Estate.

We consider a wide variety of investment and development opportunities from build-to-rent, student accommodation, co-living, industrial, retail, offices to life sciences.
