Play • 36 min

In this episode we are asking a simple but fundamental question about commercial real estate: why should companies and investors look to invest? Paul Shearer is joined by the episode sponsor - Roger Clarke (IPSX). He is also joined by Deborah Lloyd (The Association of Real Estate Funds), and Mickola Wilson (Seven Dials Fund Management).

Topics covered in this episode:

  • Roger takes us through; What is commercial real estate? How big is the market? And what do we actually mean when we talk about the types of properties that would be listed on IPSX?
  • Who, and what type of structure, owns this commercial real estate?
  • Where does property lie on the spectrum of risk when compared to bonds and equities?
  • How does property in general compare to other asset classes?
  • What is IPSX, and how does it differ to the status quo of property investment?
