Europe GRI 2017Paris, September 11th - 12th, 2017

Overview

Over 500 senior real estate lenders, developers and investors gathered in Paris for the 19th Europe GRI, numbers not seen since pre market crash. Could it be that the black cloud over Europe’s current cycle has lifted?

Participants discussed asset performances and shared business strategies within 37 different discussions. Over the two days it was clear that the threat of a Europe bubble still looms, the exit of global capital worries most and uncertainty over interest rates abounds.
