Austin’s commercial real estate industry is on fire. The sun-belt is attracting the next generation of tech companies and workers are following closely. The city boasts some of the best medical and education facilities in the country and investors are intrigued by the explosion of the metro area. Are mega-markets like New York still competitive enough to attract capital? Long live the gateway markets? On the flip side, does Austin have the infrastructure to support such growth?
Knockout Networking is a structured networking segment where the room is set with roundtables and individuals are invited to share one obstacle, problem, or pickle in 30 seconds. Once all the problems are on the table, a designated host/facilitator invites the table to take two minutes on each problem to share ideas for solutions in a rapid-fire style.
The set-up will be: 10 person roundtables, 40 minutes total; two rounds of 20 minutes with one rotation.
In an industry that’s moving fast, it helps to have data to reflect upon as we project trends for the future. Shifra Ansoff, Global Head of Research at Preqin, joins us to present the latest fundraising and deal data shaping both traditional and alternative institutional real estate sectors.
Increasing allocations combined with the search for higher alpha have driven investors to challenge the traditional definition of real estate investment. We’ll hear from three managers innovating core sectors and exploring new strategies that require more specific building requirements or operational expertise to meet demographic need. This panel will explore how investors are pivoting due to macro trends in areas of cold storage, grocery and the future of office space.
Share lunch and network with all attendees.
Are strong fundamentals in industrial, multifamily and life sciences encouraging investors to increase their allocation to commercial and residential real estate? Or, are uncertain macroeconomic conditions leading investors to reduce risk and decrease exposure? In addition to secondaries, what tools exist for LPs to manage their portfolio and reduce administrative burden? In this fireside chat, we’ll sit down with a Judy McMahan, Senior Portfolio Manager of Real Estate at UPS, to discuss the evolution of real estate as an asset class and how her team’s needs constantly evolve with the market.
While no one can predict the future, it’s our annual tradition to at least try. Are allocators still bullish in real estate looking into 2023? What predictions can be made for 2023? Will big cities and downtowns come roaring back? What alternative real estate strategies are worth diving into? Views on co-investments, secondaries and creative new fund structures? Any advice for managers looking to raise capital?
