Event description


In this course, delegates will be introduced to Property. We will look at what makes the property industry tick: how property is built, used, re-used, let, designed, sold and valued in the UK and across the world. In addition, we will look at how its characteristics compare to the other asset classes such as stocks and bonds. We will explain the vocabulary and how it all fits together! This course will expose delegates to the broader concept of real estate as an investment asset, bringing to life the real estate system, market analysis and urban economics with real case studies. They will be given opportunities to practice how to use real data and scenarios to understand how real estate has come about and how it operates in the capital markets.

This course is aimed at professionals with no or one-sided background in real estate, currently working for banks, property consultancies, planning, architecture and tech companies, data or software providers, law firms, surveying- and construction companies; all seeking to understand how real estate is formed and how it operates and trades, as well as how it compares to other asset classes.
