ANREV is pleased to invite you to a breakfast briefing in Amsterdam on Wednesday 26th June 2019.

Despite a recent slow-down, China’s economy continues to grow at a rate that outpaces the majority of developed economies, with the IMF forecasting GDP of 6.2% in 2019. Against this backdrop, the country’s real estate market presents numerous investment opportunities, which both domestic and international investors are increasingly eager to gain exposure to. Please join us for this session in which we discuss China’s broader economy and how this relates to its  real estate market, in particular, looking at recent policy changes and the subsequent market dislocation and what this means for investors.
