Club MeetingWarsaw, October 2nd

Poland’s real estate - The only Core in CEE?

The CEE GRI club meetings are gatherings of our club members, comprising of senior international and local real estate investors, lenders and developers active in CEE.

Poland enjoys undiminished popularity as a destination for real estate investment across many asset classes. Market maturity, low unemployment and low interest rates mean it is seen as a safe haven for investors in Core within the region. But is it alone?

This Club Meeting brings together local and international leaders in the CEE real estate market to discuss risk profiles and risk appetite for real estate across CEE. How does Poland’s real estate compare in risk/ reward profile compared to other CEE countries? Or is it not about the location but rather about asset class?

Discussion will focus on:

  • Latest and anticipated transaction activity across CEE
  • Investor perceptions and appetite for risk across CEE
  • Core yields in different asset classes
  • Managing to Core - Where to find the best opportunities in CEE?
