Charles van Thiel, Associate, Real Estate, will be speaking at the session: Assessing ESG Factors in Real Estate.
Real estate holds huge appeal for investors seeking long-term stable cashflows and diversification with other asset classes. Investors increasingly see ESG (environmental, social and governance) performance as a proxy for good management and a contributing factor to long term value preservation and creation across asset classes. In real estate, ESG integration demonstrates strong risk management, contributes to higher returns and helps “future-proof” a portfolio. What challenges and opportunities do investors face when incorporating ESG considerations into real estate portfolios? Join this session to hear how investors are incorporating ESG factors into their real estate investment strategies, why ESG integration matters, and what resources are available for assessing ESG performance.
