April 2011— RealFoundations ('RF') was the Gold Sponsor of the 2011 Asia Pacific Real Estate Association ('APREA') Property Leaders Forum held April 13-15th in Beijing. The Forum is an annual closed-door, invitation-only event restricted to senior industry players where the ‘real’ issues of the moment affecting the real estate industry are identified, discussed and dissected.
This year’s Forum explored the opportunities and challenges for Asia, and China in particular as an emerging global power in a time of rapid change. Topics explored included current real estate investment strategies, Asia’s investability compared to other regions, and other topics such as socially responsible investment and transparency. Forum attendees included representatives from CBRE, Yardi, Urban Land Institute ('ULI'), Jones Lang LaSalle, GIC Real Estate, ING Real Estate, Westfield Retail Trust, ProLogis and RREEF.
