Venture Capital & Tech Focused Funds

Capital heatwave or funding performance flow reversal?

  • Technology-focused Funds - Significant amount of capital invested or a drop in the bucket?
  • New Bets - Own use of resources or outside capital and partnerships to pivot bigger equity flows?
  • Local & Global Markets - Defiance when accessing them or inefficient and fragmented landscape of markets and asset classes?
  • Main Challenges - Increased competition, misallocation of capital or "Minsky moment" with funding levels drop and valuations rise?

  • Displacement - Demand uptake across asset classes in which locations?
  • Flight to Quality - What assets will become hot properties and which ones will see a drop in valuations?
  • The New Tenant Demand - ESG, affordability or amenities; what are occupiers really looking for?
  • Ageing Society - How to bridge the gap of suitable product?
  • Location Game - City centres still on top or will new neighbourhoods emerge?
  • Demand for Resi - Have we only seen the beginning of chronic lack of suitable housing?
