PAIFs or REITs? Choosing the right fund structure to access property and Become a black-belt negotiator

June 5, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment are delighted to be welcoming two esteemed speakers for this East Anglia Branch CPD event.

Nick Britton, The Association of Investment Companies (The AIC), will be presenting on the topic of PAIFs or REITs? Choosing the right fund structure to access property.

The suspensions of open-ended funds during the global financial crisis and in the aftermath of the EU Referendum have highlighted the liquidity mismatch between underlying assets and the open-ended fund structure. This presentation looks at the benefits and risks of open-ended and closed-ended direct property funds, both in themselves and as components of a portfolio.

For the second session on the day, we are hearing from Tom Flatau, Managing Director, Teamworking International, who will be delivering the session Black Belt Negotiator.
