Panel Discussion: A Phoenix or a Cuckoo? The rise of institutional capital in Residential Real Estate

"Cuckoo” funds or institutional capital that can help solve housing shortages across European cities? The panel will discuss residential real estate as a growing asset class for pension funds. Attracted by resilient cashflows throughout the Covid crises and with attractive yields in the 5% to 6% area for diversified portfolios interest from investors is on the rise. How can Irish pension funds access this growing asset class and what are the risks to watch out for? How diversified should you be – Ireland, Urban, Mass Market, or spread across a wider European portfolio? What about rental caps and government regulation? What can the Irish Private Rented Sector (PRS) market learn from more established markets in Holland and Germany? The panel may also touch upon ESG aspects such as Building Energy Efficiency and Affordable Housing.
