Geopolitics and Trade Tensions: Strategic Real Estate Strategies in a Volatile World

March 13, 2019 | 13:30 - 14:30

Geopolitics and Trade Tensions: Strategic Real Estate Strategies in a Volatile World

An increasingly unpredictable geopolitical environment, trade tensions, the threat of new tariffs, and the shift toward Asia having increasingly global gravitas, demands new agile planning decisions if corporate real estate professionals are to respond to the evolving economic climate. The growth in Asia is increasingly multipolar, as China goes global and India continues to grow. Given this backdrop, the session will examine strategic real estate planning decisions in response to unpredictable policy outcomes, volatile trade environments that impact supply chains, regional costs, and long-term budget decisions. Whether it's looking at network flexibility, reviewing capital expenditure, or anticipating the impact of tariffs, today's corporate real estate professionals need to be sensitive to the changing environment and plan risk mitigation, while also responding to the mega-trends impacting the sector.

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify current and future risks caused by geopolitical and volatile trade environments. 
  • Gain an understanding of real estate strategies that can help mitigate these risks.
