Real estate 'top attraction' for Mideast investors post brexit

RIYADH, October 11, 2017

Real estate remains attractive for Middle Eastern investors seeking portfolio diversification and a hedge against inflation, said a top industry expert.  

"Despite the uncertainty and headwinds from Brexit, a weaker currency coupled with a transparent market and strong legal system, provides compelling investment opportunities," remarked Aly Meghani, the vice president of International Real Estate at Sedco Capital UK.

A Saudi-based company, Sedco Capital owns and manages a diverse and extensive portfolio of global real estate.

"We are actively deploying capital in the UK, Continental Europe and the US on behalf of our clients, who have appetite for long dated income and capital preservation," he stated.

Meghani was a special invitee on a panel entitled The Global Real Estate Market: Who’s investing, in what and where? at the Islamic Finance Forum in London where he discussed the changing trends in the Global Real Estate Market.

The discussion focused on the main considerations for global real estate investors, sources of capital and the macroeconomic and geopolitical risks impacting decision making.

The Forum, which took place at Mansion House in London, included several panels focusing on trends in global real estate and Islamic finance.

At the event, top experts evaluated options for Shariah-compliant real estate structures, the regulatory environment affecting real estate transactions, opportunities in the US for real estate investors and how equity crowdfunding and propTech are altering the real estate landscape.-TradeArabia News Service
