Realcast: Funds to release cash, Lyon resi flood risk, Real Asset Media to print EXPO Real daily

In the spotlight this week:

Realcast returns after the summer break during which the news focus has been on interest rates, energy, climate disruption and the economy.

In that context INREV research has revealed that fewer closed end funds will be seeking extensions than usual, releasing €9.6 billion into the market between 2022 and 2024. By 2031 90 funds are due to terminate potentially releasing €95 billion.

AEW’s research team has also updated its analysis of the physical risks of climate change for Real Estate particularly flooding and rising sea levels  – prime residential in Lyon is at particular risk from flooding and the Dutch cities Amsterdam and Rotterdam are top two cities at risk from rising sea levels.

Meanwhile, the owners and operators of the Bon Accord Shopping Centre in Aberdeen, Scotland, have been placed in administration as the city’s retail sector struggles.

As the events and conference season gears up Real Asset Media will be looking at some of these trends in more details: the coming week finds us in Brussels for a Global Real Estate Outlook briefing with PwC in Brussels featuring Thomas Veith and Byron Carlock of PwC and Piet van Poppel of CBRE investment Management. Later this week we will be reporting from the EPRA conference in Paris.

And, as preparations for EXPO Real gather momentum, we are pleased to announce the relaunch of the English language EXPO Real Daily News, which Real Asset Media will print and distribute during the event, so do contact us with any news and announcements that you will issue while you are in Munich.
