As global investors continue to look outside traditional markets to find institutional level returns, participants will discuss emerging infrastructure investment strategies providing long-term capital investment opportunities, indirect returns, and extensive portfolio diversification, led by the innovators forging the path toward P3s. Leaders in the industry will share their perspectives and key insights on identifying viable investment opportunities across sectors, and the investment structures still providing optimal yield. These distinguished professionals will examine top-level approaches for returns in infrastructure, retail, residential, office, hospitality, and mixed-use developments. Each session will offer an in-depth analysis by industry trailblazers of how external factors are impacting that sector, and insights on continuing to find excess returns.
The two-day invitation-only summit will feature exclusive keynote fireside chats, interviews, panel discussions, in-depth workshops, private networking dinner and direct one-on-one networking meetings in a setting which will provide a global look into the value of cross-cultural relationships and business interests.
