PFA Conference 2019 - Presentations


PFA Conference 2019

The PFA Conference 2019 contained an outstanding line-up of speakers who addressed the theme:

Critical Change - Crisis, challenge or catalyst for property investment?

Property markets may be considered stable, but Critical Change is still occurring. International politics, trade and capital flows are in flux. Corporate takeover activity is evident. New financing sources are developing. Alternative asset classes are looking less alternative. The PFA Conference for 2019 will review the activity in global and local markets and examine whether the current times are a crisis, challenge or catalyst for property investment. Join us to hear from leading industry experts on how this stable market may not be so stable after all.
