Capital

Working too hard or more to stretch?

  • Allocations - Deals to be focused on which opportunities and where?
  • Risk Profiles in Volatile Times - Is the hunger for BTR and sub-assets over or appetite for more?
  • Saturated Markets & Location Shifts - Inflationary limbo in prime areas, or always safe to pile on new core locations? 
  • Cross-border Capital - US and Asia holding back through inflation risks?
  • Hedging through Inflation Crisis - How might we attract and retain more residential investment capital?
