Two new speakers have been announced for IPSX’s breakfast seminar which will take a long look at the future of real estate investment, hosted by Addleshaw Goddard on Wednesday 23 October.
Pam Smith, chief executive of Stockport Council and Deborah McLaughlin, an independent property consultant, will be joining the panel, which already features Roger Clarke from the stock exchange for real estate, IPSX, and John Forbes from John Forbes Consulting and Patrick Brown from the British Property Federation.
The seminar, which will also visit Edinburgh, Leeds and Birmingham, will address how the sector needs to respond to continue to be attractive to new investors, and the issues and opportunities facing UK real estate today.
Roger Clarke, managing director and head of capital markets at IPSX, said: “The UK commercial property market is valued at around £935bn, making it one of the biggest asset classes in the UK, but against the current economic and political backdrop it can be a challenge to keep abreast of the latest state of play.”
IPSX has yet to see its first IPO although talks are ongoing with several parties over listing on the exchange, including owner occupiers, sovereign wealth funds, major quoted real estate and private real estate funds.
By using IPSX, building owners will be able to sell part of a building in the form of shares, to increase liquidity and gain funds without relinquishing control.
