Cambridge hosts Real Estate Finance and Investment research symposium

last modified Oct 11, 2016 05:34 PM
The Land Economy department hosted the first Real Estate Finance and Investment in Cambridge last month.

The event, which was jointly organised with the National University of Singapore and the University of Florida, brought 20 internationally renowned scholars to the University to present and discuss new work on real estate finance and investment. Presenters came from universities in the US, the Netherlands, Turkey, Switzerland and the UK. Topics explored included mortgages, commercial real estate, residential real estate and urban economics.

 “This event really strengthens Cambridge’s visibility in the research community. The high number of 50 submissions competing for 10 slots on the programme is an indicator of the success of the event, as well as the quality of the papers presented,” said Dr Thies Lindenthal, lecturer in Real Estate Finance.

Prof Colin Lizieri, Head of Department, Land Economy emphasises that a special issue in the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics will be dedicated to a selection of the presented papers and edited by the organisers. This allows Cambridge to positively shape the research agenda on real estate finance and investments. 

The successful symposium will now become an annual event, alternating between Cambridge, Florida and Singapore.
