Future Proofing Portfolios

We recently had the pleasure of taking part in Commonwealth Private’s Inaugural Annual Conference, exploring the theme of Connectivity.

Following are the key insights from our panel session:

  • Rather than simply a threat, technology is an opportunity for well-located property that can meet the needs of technology driven tenants such as data centres and life science industries.
  • Employment in the technology focused markets continues to grow, such as in San Francisco, London and Toronto.
  • Ecommerce is driving strong demand for industrial logistics facilities.
  • Clearly retail is the most vulnerable sector at present but those select fortress malls that can adapt to changing consumer spending patterns continue to do well.

All current themes that will undoubtedly continue to evolve.
