The report has been prepared in cooperation with CMS, a top ten international law firm.

Topics to be discussed during the event:

  • Exit Britain…. Enter CEE? Will CEE capitals like Warsaw and Prague gain alongside Frankfurt, Paris and Dublin? Can the CEE property markets benefit from Britain’s exit from the EU?
  • Why the CEE region (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria) hits the investment level of EUR 12.2bn and becomes liquid and mature marketplace?
  • Asian investment flows are likely to be one of the most significant for the CEE commercial real estate markets in 2017. What are other origins of capital flowing to the CEE region? What is the impact of oil and commodity prices levels?
  • 2016 brought a striking rise of domestic and CEE cross-border flows that more than doubled in last 5 years, reaching EUR 2.6bn in 2016. Which markets are the leaders and which might become more active in the nearest future?
  • The entry of funds such as Blackstone, TPG and GIC in the past 2-3 years has necessitated the application of international operating standards. Why Warranty & Indemnity Insurance product has become a popular product in Real Estate M&A transactions in the CEE region?
