Private Equity Real Estate - Industry and Investment Process Review

Dear IMD Alumni,

We had a successful Joint School BBQ Buffet Dinner event last Saturday. IMD Alumni Club of Hong Kong would like to invite you to our second event of 2016 with Dr. Charles Lam.

Private equity real estate funds have been investing in Greater China and Asia Pacific for more than two decades, and are playing an important role in the development of the real estate industry alongside the public equities. As a veteran fund manager in the real estate investment industry. Dr. Lam will share his experience and views on the history and current landscape of the real estate fund industry in Asia, the common fallacies in real estate investments, and some important factors a real estate investment professional should pay special attention to during the investment process.

Dr. Lam is Managing Director, Real Estate of Baring Private Equity Asia, and has been working in real estate industry for more than two decades.
