  • Smart City Expo Barcelona 2019

    In its ninth year the show continues to grow, bringing together technology, design, future vision and public bodies. This once offbeat event has now spawned a range of associated events across the globe. Still struggling a little to separate itself from well know property shows such as Mipim, it is hard to say if Smart City Expo is about technology, design or planning and construction. Perhaps it is looking to amalgamate all these areas. Some examples of exhibitors were Moscow city, the Saxony region of Germany, Catalonia and Leeds City Region on the public body side. Technology attendees were the usual players of Microsoft, Cisco and the ilk with some more niche and newer players presenting their wares. To add to the mix Seat showed it’s new electric scooter with a presentation from their top man. Specialist vehicle firms had demos of their driverless autonomous pods, some of which are now live and being used in parts of the world.


  • Thirty years of Mipim, Cannes France

    So another year and another wrap for the yacht parties and fine dining. Mipim, the annual beano for the property sector, held in Cannes France, has become one of the leading conferences for the sector - certainly here in Europe. After some negative and frankly cheap swipes by the less informed media, Mipim has worked hard to push diversity and lose the image of it all being men in suits. The event has become more international and diverse. The first Monday back, across the sector now starts the account reconciliation for business earned v´s expensive meals eaten.


  • Futurebuild 2019, East London

    The three day event once named EcoBuild, closed its 2019 edition last Thursday. The busy exhibition and conference was as ever, held in London Docklands' large purpose built ExCel venue. Although missing the full buzz of previous years, the event was well attended and featured some international exhibitors. Sustainable design and development seem the order of the day. With off grid pods, collaborative living and recyclable design in abundance.


  • Hospitality Gains Pace

    The group looks to further develop its hotel concept as a standalone and in conjuction with an existing UK hotel operator with plans to branch overseas. Business and management strategy to be tweaked dependant on site location, property pitch and scale.


  • Italian Investments

    Cagliari located on the desirable tourist island hotspot of Sardinia was the setting for the latest Italian government backed investment forum. The refurbished old tobacco factory was the venue for innovative Italian firms to meet investors and academics. Drawn from sectors as diverse as biodiversity, eco-technology and alternative forms of construction. Enterprise values of the attendees ranged from sub one million euros to over 100 million euros.


  • November 2018

    The company bids on several UK leisure assets as part of its strategy to develop a wider hospitality offering. For sometime AMC Network has been looking to create and market a hotel and leisure offering in its own name or with a close partner. This comes after several years of acting for the large groups, which has unveiled some overlooked opportunities.


  • The longtail of the global recession

    Deals made in straitened times are now predictably coming back to haunt the value investors of 2009-14. Legitimately vendors, some of which can include government bodies, are effectively saying they were forced to sell assets at lower than market values when times were hard, therefore arguing some investors took advantage of the vendors' unenviable economic predicament. Where the crisis hit particularly hard in Southern Europe, courts are seeing several of these belated legal cases. No doubt some are being driven with externally funded legal fees arranged by specialist funds, usually payable contingent on the winning of the action. Think of it as an investment on top of an investment! The business can also work the other way around, in complete reverse, with investment funds suing public bodies for allegedly mis-selling investments and then subsequently making changes to the legal regime. The investors argue, in light of these later changes, returns are in-existent or not as healthy as they had envisaged.


  • Autumn 2018 market update

    The UK real estate market tends to be seeing some early effects of the 2019 scheduled Brexit divorce from the EU. Although some of this can be seen as somewhat of an excuse for struggling corners of the market. For example, the London residential market was already valued very highly for many years, so a softening was to be expected in any financial cycle, add to this equation further outside factors and the demise of Russian and Chinese private buyers. The result is a price drop in certain parts of the London market. More affordable stock continues to sell. Conversely to London prime, desirable commercial stock across the UK seems to still be moving with anything yielding above 4-5% selling rapidly to appropriate buyers. The Eurozone may not be as healthy as is being widely mooted, hence explaining some of the stranger and lacking sound strategy decisions being issued out to member states.


  • MIPIM 2018 in Cannes

    With global markets on somewhat of a yo yo session, think Brexit, Trump, China capital lock down, expectations for Mipim were moderate. The mood was distinctively positive, with the event having a stronger than usual Anglo-French feel. Certain countries were obvious by their absence and there was the usual charm fest taking place, by cities such as Istanbul, Turkey and Stockholm, Sweden.


  • March 2018

    Brexit still appears to dominate European politics and is having some notable economic effect, coupled with this month's Italian election and Spain's lack of sensible resolve in Catalonia; all combined it makes for an interesting and complex European investment environment.
