About the event

The future of investment in real assets

In an industry constantly looking to adapt, lead and grow, we invite you as industry leaders to shape the world we live in, create positive change and be a part of the world’s most important discussions.

In an ever-changing geopolitical landscape, we need to know how to make informed investments in the world we live in and manage future risk. We need to know how to future proof the urban and natural environment against resource scarcity and climate change, and how to navigate the circular economy.

How will technology aid and inform decision making to limit economic risk? Big data, blockchain and other technologies will have a role to play in the future of the built environment and help us to create smart, liveable and resilient cities. It will change the workplace as we know it: the buildings we work and live in could become more educated than their residents.

In the context of investing in the built environment, our summit will explore:

  • The changing nature of work and workplace
  • The impact of algorithms and tokenisation
  • The real-world outcomes for cities and citizens
  • New finance models for energy and transport
  • Investment risk allocation
