Cambridge Real Estate Long Term Investor Event 2015

last modified Sep 02, 2015 05:16 PM
The Cambridge Real Estate Research Centre hosts the 2015 Long Term Investor Event an annual event for Sovereign Wealth Funds and similar long-term investors.........

The event provides a private forum for the discussion and debate of topical issues in global real estate investment, bringing together some of the most influential investors in the industry to discuss global issues with attendees from as far afield as Australia and Singapore.   

Organisations represented included GIC (Singapore), M&G Real Estate, The Wellcome Trust, Norges, PGGM Investments, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, Australia’s FutureFund and The University of Cambridge Investment Office.

The event was chaired and organised by Nick Mansley, Executive Director of the Cambridge Real Estate Research.  Sessions were introduced by experts from both academia and industry:

  • Professor Colin Lizieri introduced a session exploring long-term value, risk and current pricing and raised a range of issues about capital flows and the implications for risk.
  • Peter Webster, CEO of EIRIS led a topical session on the de-carbonisation agenda and the impact on investment strategies an issue challenging investors to think about when disinvestment is appropriate and when engagement with management is more appropriate. 
  • Ioannis Brilakis from the Department of Engineering presented on some of the advances in sensing, measurement and construction technologies some of the implications for asset management and construction.
  • Finally, Robert Muir-Wood of RMS, formerly a research fellow at Trinity Hall, led a session on catastrophic risk, resilience and sustainability of cities and real estate, including a lively discussion on catastrophe bonds.

This is what one of the attendees had to say about the value of the event:


“I found the event very interesting and informative.  These are topics we think about consciously but haven't got the luxury to spend much of our time on, on a day to day basis.  To have experts who work intimately in these areas walk us through the thinking and bring us up to date is tremendously helpful.”

“I found the time very well spent and look forward to future sessions”


The event in July was sponsored by The Cambridge Land Economy Advisory Board [CLEAB].

The event is part of a range of activities undertaken by the Centre and the Department to raise the profile of research within the University and to help the real estate industry address major challenges.
