Understanding Trends, Strategies and Risk as Interest Rates Begin to Rise
The Most Important Conference in Q1 Returns: Real Estate in an Unpredictable Market
As a new year begins and the pandemic still remains, uncertainty continues about what to expect over the next twelve months. Does there appear to be a light at the end of the tunnel?
How long will the cost of capital remain at current prices? Will inflation continue at higher than desired levels and lead to interest rate increases in Q1 of 2022? How will this uncertainty affect real estate owners, developers and investors to conduct their business? While there continues to be a large supply of funds for lending and investment, how will you access it in 2022, at what price and from whom?
Notwithstanding the aforementioned issues, how much investment activity can be expected in office, retail, industrial and multi-unit residential real estate assets? In which markets?
Are quality real estate assets still fully priced? Where are cap rates heading at this time? Is the flight to quality still a leading priority? What will all of these factors mean for the performance of the capital and the credit markets in Canada and the United States over the next twelve months?
Pivoting to Virtual but Providing Market Intelligence in an Quality Environment
We were hopeful when we began planning RealCapital in October to be able to hold it live and in-person at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
However, the first issue arose in December with the emergence in Canada and then the accelerated spread of the Omicron variant.
The Ontario Government’s sudden announcement last week impacts the protocols governing many activities and facilities and this includes live conferences. The constraints on capacity among several other factors makes it impossible for us to hold RealCapital in-person in a feasible manner for attendees and speakers.
More importantly – and coupled with the impact of this announcement – is our very strong concern about providing a healthy and safe environment given the present impact of the Omicron variant.
As a result, we have decided that it is in the best interests of everyone to pivot the conference from in-person to virtual as was the case last year. The 2021 virtual RealCapital was rated as one of the five top conferences by participants among all of Informa’s similar events globally. All our efforts will be focused on duplicating this level of excellence.
The 21st annual RealCapital will focus on the aforementioned key issues and trends by bringing together owners and investors with sources of public and private equity and debt financing in the Canadian real estate market.
The program will provide a unique, high-level business forum that will examine these themes, address key issues, assess emerging trends, and discuss effective strategies for real estate investment and financing for office, industrial, retail, and multi-residential sectors for 2022 across the country.
We hope that you will take advantage of this very informative event.
