A major global financial center, Hong Kong is one of the world's richest territories and serves as a major trade and service hub for both Asia and the world. With the continued turmoil in global financial markets, experts have looked to China and Asia to lead the economic recovery. Hong Kong sits at the center of Asia’s economic success. Hong Kong's recent economic growth and wealth creation has led to a boom in real estate; however, concerns regarding global markets weigh heavily on the minds of investors in Hong Kong. Will regulators continue to combat rising real estate values to prevent asset price bubbles? Will institutional investors rethink their real estate exposure to the region? How decoupled are local and international markets when it comes to investing in Asia?
Chicago Booth invites you to join us for a discussion with Booth alumni and real estate investment professionals who will share their expertise and perspective on the current environment. Hear their take on the future of the real estate industry in Hong Kong.
