Seniority of a boardroom, intimacy of your living room

As 2018 draws to a close, investors have witnessed the full impact of the policy initiatives taken in 2016-2017. In particular, consolidation of products and services in real estate are really starting to shape up. Does this mean, we are being presented with a different competitive landscape as a wave of joint ventures and joint developments empower financially struggling developers to be taken over by larger players? As the completion of existing projects takes priority over the launch of new ones, will 2019 present us with an unhealthy supply/demand problem across new build assets?


Should investors then look towards other asset classes to protect their interests? Strong performances can be seen from retail and logistics that is continuing to underwrite investor’s confidence; especially when we factor in e-commerce as a growth driver.


With all this in mind, despite strong market conditions, will growth stagnate or do the market fundamentals point to high yielding signs of better things to come? Will disruption from student & senior housing, co-working, co-living and the likes, change India for the better? Will the global institutional capital continue to pool into offices or are they looking for yields elsewhere?


At GRI meetings such pressing questions are discussed among participants in a relaxed and interactive atmosphere. We believe that sitting with a selected group of senior peers and forming intimate discussions is the best way to get an insight into a market that is heavily reliant on local trends, local policy, and local expertise.
