In an industry constantly looking to adapt, lead and grow, we invite you to help shape the world we live in, create positive change and be a part of the world’s most important discussions.

In an ever-changing geopolitical landscape, investment decisions are increasingly complex and active risk management demands ever greater agility. How will new technology impact real assets and how might it help to maximise returns?

Technology is transforming every aspect of our lives. Big data, blockchain and cryptocurrencies are just some of the tools that will help shape the built environment and contribute to the creation of smart, liveable and resilient cities. As we begin to explore the possibilities of intelligent buildings, our workplaces could fundamentally change, along with their value proposition to investors, developers, owners and occupants.

Key themes explored, in the context of investing in the built environment include:
• The changing nature of work and workplace
• The impact of algorithms and tokenisation
• The real-world outcomes for cities and citizens
• New finance models for energy and transport
• Investment risk allocation
