The PERE Asia Summit is being held in Singapore next week for the first time ever, with Mingtiandi founder Michael Cole set to speak at the event alongside industry leaders including ESR chairman Jeffrey Perlman, Ivanhoe Cambridge co-head of Asia Pacific George Agethen, and dozens more.
The three day conference will open on Tuesday, 31 May with a set of three forums focused on debt and financing, logistics and REITs before continuing on 1 June with the global investor forum and concluding on 2 June with a second day of global investor sessions and an afternoon focusing on family office issues.
