Listen to our latest Pensions Conjecture debate on Property Investment.
In a sponsored debate hosted by Professional Pensions, industry experts discussed the property investment market and the opportunities it provides for occupational pension schemes.
While property market returns are likely to slow in most regions next year the capital values for good quality properties should continue to rise in the short term - due to the high premium in yields over government bonds.
The debate gets to the heart of scheme property investment and asks if pension funds should be increasing their allocations to the asset class.
The panel includes:
Andrew Allen - Director of Global Property Research, Aberdeen Asset Management
Anthony Shayle - Head of Global Real Estate - UK, UBS
John Gellatly - Head of Real Estate Multi-Manager Europe, Aviva Investors
Phil Clark - Head of Property Investment, Kames Capital
