KIP Speaker Video Library - UK Commercial Property Update
Our most recent speaker talks are available to view for paid KIP subscribers via our speaker video library: https://www.kiwisinproperty.com/speaker-videos.
New this month is our all star Kiwi property panel of Cam Fraser (Marchmont), James Edwards (Evans Randall), Sam Mellor (Barings), Jared Hart (Maya Capital) and Michael Kensington (Guild Living). The panel experience included logistics, office, retail, debt and senior living. We discussed the impact of COVID, Brexit, the rising importance of sustainability, reliable data and diversity of property talent. The guys also offered some good advice for fellow kiwis looking to work in their respective sectors. If you missed this talk first time round we highly recommend catching up on the recording.
Kiwi deal-flow club
After many Zoom calls in 2020 we are delighted to say that the KIP deal-flow club is expanding exponentially, not only from within the Kiwi community but also to our non-Kiwi friends through quality introductions from the network. We are pleased at the engagement and the transaction breadth we are covering, but most of all we are delighted that we have been able to get great deals to active investors. If you have property you would like to look at selling discreetly, or your buying requirements have been updated, please let us know so we can assist. You can get in touch with Bryce at [email protected] or Patrick Ryan at [email protected]
