CEE Investment Forum findings (November 2019)

  • The CEE Investment Forum is a conference focusing on investments in Central and Eastern Europe. It features international guests, key firms operating in the financial markets across the region, and an extension of the topics.

  • For researchers and journalists, it might be interested to look into investments happening or announced in the field of housing and real estate.

  • The 2019 edition took place in Prague on 6 November.

  • Key messages:

    • The CEE region is very attractive from the point of view of foreign investment, and this is cross-sectoral.

    • Although the boom in real estate investment in Europe continues, many real estate experts predict a decline in profitability and investors are focusing on high-quality assets in the most economically efficient markets. One of the key themes of the conference was also investment strategies used in the real-estate market and the "fight" for the highest quality assets (foreign vs. local investors).

    • You will also find a list of experts present at the conference, which might be useful to understand "who is who" among the investors interested in the region.
