In this session we examined how Europe is becoming an arena for distressed real estate investors. On top of outlining how private equity firms are approaching the market, our experts also dissected how investors in their funds (including corporate pension plans, sovereign wealth funds and insurance companies) are reacting to Europe’s economic disorder, compared to North America and Asia. Our experts discussed whether European banks have become true sellers, how private equity funds can finance €1 bn-plus transactions, and where capital for private equity firms is coming from.
Some questions they answered:
What are the large private equity real estate funds doing?
Do investors still have appetite for risk?
Is Europe the best region for distressed real estate deals?
How do you finance €1 bn-plus transactions?
Are the banks really selling yet?
