The China Story: Opportunities for working in China and with Chinese investors

  • Has the economic slowdown in 2015 caused international investors to rethink or do they view it as creating opportunity?
  • With policy initiatives aimed at boosting capital flows into real estate and interest rate cuts lowering the developer cost of capital, where are the opportunities? Should you be looking at second tier cities or is it better to stick with the safety of Beijing & Shanghai? And with second tier cities, how can you avoid the oversupply mistake?
  • With the government’s anti-corruption initiative, institutional and core funds have started backing prime income-producing assets in tier 1 cities. Is this trend set to continue?
  • Opportunistic possibilities: Are economic issues, oversupply and declining development margins creating opportunities for discerning investors in the opportunistic space?
  • Is the growth in platform and entity-level transactions in China one that it set to continue?
  • What opportunities is the increased appetite of Chinese developers for partnering with international players creating?
  • China as an outbound investor: With estimates that Chinese insurers could export as much as US $240 billion to international property markets in the next 10-20 years, and strong appetite from Chinese investors for international projects and acquisition, is there an increased opportunity to work with Chinese investors on an international level?
