How Will The Canadian Debt And Capital Markets Perform In The Headwinds Of 2020?

The Most Important Conference in Q1 Returns: Real Estate in a Rising Interest Rate Environment

As a new year begins, uncertainty continues about what to expect over the next twelve months.

Where is the cost of capital heading? How will this impact the ability of real estate owners, developers and investors to conduct their business? While there continues to be a large supply of funds for lending and investment, how will you access it in 2020, at what price and from whom? 

Will REITs and REOCs continue to grow if challenges occur in raising equity in the public markets? Is the housing market calming down not only in the Greater Toronto and Vancouver areas but also in Montreal, Ottawa and other cities?

Notwithstanding the aforementioned issues, does office, retail, industrial and multi-unit residential real estate investment remain fairly attractive? 

Are quality real estate assets now fully priced? Have cap rates been pushed too low? Is the flight to quality still relevant? What will all of these factors mean for the performance of the capital and the credit markets in Canada and the United States over the next twelve months? 

Bringing Together Users of Capital with Sources of Capital: A Record Attendance Last Year

RealCapital 2020 will focus on these key issues and trends by bringing together owners and investors with sources of public and private equity and debt financing in the Canadian real estate market.  

The program will provide a unique, high-level business forum that will examine these themes, address key issues, assess emerging trends, and discuss effective strategies for real estate investment and financing for office, industrial, retail, and multi-residential sectors in the current environment across the country.  

A record 670 executives from across Canada attended this one-day conference last year. Strong interest is expected in RealCapital 2020 which will take place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre North Building. In keeping with the strong reputation of the forums, RealCapital will present high-quality speakers on very topical issues at a relatively low registration fee.

The conference will also provide a great opportunity to network with experts and decision-makers responsible for real estate investment and financing today. 

We hope that you will take advantage of this very informative event.
