RICS global summit to discuss future of real estate investment

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), a professional body engaged in the promotion and enforcement of international standards in the valuation, management and development of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure, is organising `World Built Environment Forum Summit 2019’ which will bring together global leaders on to deliberate on the future of investment in real estate.

The theme of the summit is ‘The future of investment in real assets’ with a focus on harnessing new technology to mobilise the private capital investment needed to meet the growing global demand for new infrastructure, new real estate and the renewal of existing assets.
More than 500 delegates from the highest levels of industry, government and policymaking are expected to attend the fourth summit of the RICS World Built Environment Forum, which is the flagship event of the forum.
The summit will debate how to make informed and responsible investments within an ever-changing technological and geopolitical landscape. 
In the context of investing in the built environment, the 2019 Summit will specifically explore key themes such as:
  • The changing nature of work and workplace
  • The impact of algorithms and tokenization
  • The real-world outcomes for cities and citizens
  • New finance models for energy and transport
  • Investment risk allocation
