No Risk, No Reward: A Real Estate Perspective
This one-hour webinar looks at the role of risk in the world of real estate. If the last year has taught us anything, it is that risk is part of our everyday lives. Risk is generally considered to be a bad thing, and yet, if properly managed, risk can lead to significant returns.
Our expert speakers, Blair Cameron of the Risk Partnership and Richard Davies of M&G Real Estate, moderated by James Young of Cushman & Wakefield, discuss a number of different issues around this topic – looking at attitudes to risk and repositioning your business to recognise risk. The discussion also looks at some of the burning platforms in the real estate world and considers the specific risks around these.
