A new reality for the African real estate industry, which has faced a number of geo-political and economic challenges over the last few years, is starting to emerge, and investors and developers have already started to look into how they can best redefine this new property landscape.

Key Questions Covered in Press Conference:

  • Leonard Michau, Head – sub-Saharan African Operations at Broll Property Group.

Once the darling of African real estate, the sentiment for West Africa has been largely negative over the last two years- is this narrative changing and can we expect Nigeria and Ghana’s real estate markets to start growing again?

  • Bronwyn Corbett, Chief Executive Officer, GRIT Real Estate Income Group, Mauritius.

Grit recently completed a successful USD121 million capital raise. What are new and existing equity providers looking for and is their profile changing? Is there still appetite from London, Europe and the far east and are African pension funds becoming more accessible?

  • Selwyn Blieden, Head of CPF Coverage: Rest of Africa – Barclay’s Africa group (CIB), South Africa, Barclays Africa Group (CIB), South Africa.

Which sectors are providing the most promise of growth and sustainability? How do the LTV’s differ cross sector and what assets are lenders finding most defensive?
