In 2016, investment in Iberian commercial property totalled €10 bn, a volume that is set to further growth in 2017, boosted by the increasing attractiveness of the top 3 Iberian cities: Madrid, Lisbon and Barcelona.
Targeting the international investment community, the Iberian Property Summit will be a time to share information on the Iberian market in order to facilitate the best investment decisions, also giving attendees the opportunity to meet all the of the Industry’s key players and decision makers. The one-day event is chaired by Rupert Nabarro, founder of IPD and one of the most prestigious personalities in the UK investment industry, gathering high-level speakers from Iberian, European and International investors, consultants and organisations, including some of the most dynamic Spanish and Portuguese players such as Colonial, Hispania, Neinor, SAREB, Square Asset Management and leading market analysts from CBRE, Uria Menéndez Lawyers, MSCI or RCA.
The program will feature the leading economist, fund manager and bestseller author Daniel Lacalle, who will be presenting the economic outlook for both Spain and Portugal. Daniel is a frequent collaborator with CNBC, Hedgeye and the Wall Street Journal, integrating the top 20 of 2016 Richtopia’s Most Influential Economist ranking.
In addition to the economic outlook, the program will provide a comprehensive insight on the attraction of investments to the region, focusing on themes such as the competition between the main Iberian cities; the origin and profile of the most active investors; as well as the most appealing segments and opportunities in this sector. The 2016 property returns of about 12%-13% in Portugal and Spain (according to MSCI indexes); strong occupier markets underpinning good prospects for capital growth; good economic fundamentals; a much improved legal framework; increasing tourism attractiveness; and scale investment opportunities that can emerge from ongoing financial industry’s deleveraging processes; are some of the Iberian market´s highlighted features.
“This event intends to meet the growing interest of investors who are closely watching Iberia as an essential “must go” destination in their strategic plans, but who seek to find out more about Spain and Portugal; to get to know different local realities and to be in touch with the insights of those who already have a Pan-Iberian presence”, states Iberian Property’s director, António Gil Machado
