    Global real estate: optimising portfolios by geography, sector and strategy

    > Geography: global diversification, emerging markets, currency risks
    Where are the best opportunities today globally? Has much of the opportunity in the US now passed? Should opportunistic investors shift their focus to Southern Europe? Should emerging markets play a larger part in global portfolios? Can investors achieve effective diversification by targeting the world's biggest markets or do they need to target underlying economic drivers of return?

    > Sector: The case for alternative property types
    Is there a greater need for alternative property types, such as those driven by demographic trends like housing, retirement homes and healthcare. Online and manufacturing technology is causing fundamental changes in the retail and industrial sectors. Do investors need to reassess the types of property they invest in and adjust their portfolios to reflect the bigger picture?

    > Strategy: From core to opportunistic, from equity to debt
    Should investors focus on unleveraged core real estate or is there a place for higher-returning strategies. What does opportunistic mean in today's market? Global lending markets for real estate are undergoing a structural shift and there is a long-term opportunity for institutional investors to fill gaps left by bank lenders and a pared down CMBS market. Should investors be investing across all 'quadrants', including listed markets and debt financing?
