With an average of more than 20 years’ experience of working in European, Asian and US real estate investment markets the Didobi team is able to offer our clients a comprehensive and genuinely independent property market research and analysis service.
In April 2019 the Investment Property Forum (“IPF”) sent out an invitation for parties to tender for a short research project and paper entitled “Global Capital Flows in a World of increasing Nationalism & Protectionism”.
Thesis – In a world of increasing political and trade tensions the prevailing economic orthodoxy of expanding international free trade and the increasingly free movement of goods, services and labour around the globe has come under pressure from protectionist forces and rising nationalism at the ballot box in Europe, Asia and North America.
Didobi were asked to consider what the impact an interruption or even a reversal in this trend towards globalisation and greater cross border economic integration might be for the international real estate investment industry. Would it simply mean a return to “the old days” of localised real estate markets or will it set in motion a whole new chain of events and structural changes?
Didobi was awarded the tender and prepared a report for publication.
The report is due for publication in October 2019. This will be followed by a presentation of the findings at a seminar in November.
