Experts Address Alternative Asset Class Outlook


A slowdown in residential development across Australia has seen major REITs and private developers shifting their focus to alternative real estate assets.

Childcare real estate, data centres, service stations and self-storage assets are attracting increased investment capital, fuelled by changing demographics, increasing levels of data consumption and rapid urbanisation.

The Urban Developer Alternative Real Estate vSummit is an online conference dedicated to these growing global alternative investment classes.

Join us as we bring together a panel of developers, operators, owners, investors and professionals to unpack the outlook and opportunities for childcare real estate, data centres, service stations and self-storage assets in Australia.
