This forum, which celebrates its 4th edition, is the Iberian reference in terms of analysis and debate over real estate investment and has become the meeting point for the main national and international investors operating in Portugal and Spain.
The 2019 edition of the Portugal Real Estate Summit intends to be a roadmap to identify the best investment opportunities in the Portuguese market, focusing in particular on the new Portuguese REIT regime, called SIGI.
«Portugal is a market in full international expansión. The SIGI may capitalize foreign investment in our real estate market exponentially, opening the door to global investors who have yet to enter the market, or who have carried out occasional transactions. Besides the advantages concerning liquidity, transparence and flexibility, this is a type of vehicle that is well known by investors and which allows them to be present in several markets with a common regime. We are already aware of several intentions to open SIGIs within our internal market and the Portugal Real Estate Summit may be important in terms of attracting interest from other players who want to follow this path», points out António Gil Machado, director at Iberian Property, the Iberian information platform which organizes this conference.
Besides integrating a panel exclusively dedicated to the REIT opportunities in Portugal, the meeting’s first day starts with a view of the national economy, presented by Cristina Casalinho, presidente of IGCP– Instituto de Gestão do Crédito Público (Public Credit Management Institute). The real estate state of affairs will be covered by Cushman & Wakefield, CBRE and Savills. The following interventions, during the first and the second day, will focus on the investment opportunities in the Portuguese market, taking into account different types of assets, cities and project structuring.
