Some of the leading players in Asia Pacific real estate investment are coming together next week to share their insights on logistics strategies in the region as part of Mingtiandi’s Asia Logistics Real Estate Forum.
Among the executives joining the session at 10am Hong Kong time on 6 July will be major investment managers Rushabh Desai, chief executive for Asia Pacific at Allianz Real Estate, and Suchad Chiaranussati, chairman and founder of Singapore’s SC Capital.
Also contributing their expertise will be JLL capital markets chief executive Stuart Crow and Lance Li, chief executive of Vietnam’s BW Industrial, as the group of industry veterans explores where the region’s core markets are headed in 2021.
With logistics real estate continuing to be among the most competitive areas for property investment, the group will be comparing investment returns for projects in core markets around the region, including China, Japan, Korea and Australia. Also on the slate is the outlook for developing core strategies in locations throughout Asia Pacific.
During the one-hour session, which is sponsored by Yardi, the audience will have an opportunity to hear what Allianz Real Estate has learned after investing in logistics projects in China, Japan, India and other markets around the region, with Chiaranussati’s SC Capital having also established warehouse investments in China and Japan, as well as in Australia and South Korea.
With more than 20 years of experience managing logistics projects in Greater China and Southeast Asia, BW Industrial’s Li will be sharing the outlook for the sector from Vietnam, while JLL’s Stuart Crow will provide insights on where institutional capital is headed around the region, from his vantage point advising some of the world’s largest investors.
The discussion will be carried live on Mingtiandi’s MTD TV video platform, with audience members invited to contribute their own questions via an interactive Q&A system.
