A smart future for African real estate

Regarded as the continent’s premier gathering for key African policy makers, developers, corporates, and investors, the 9th annual Africa Property Investment (API) Summit & Expo will be held this year at the Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton Central, on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 September 2018.

In the last decade, SA REITs have proven their ability to operate successfully on the international stage and play in almost any market in the world. But does this make them truly global real estate players?

Leadership, governance, integrity, transformation, and economic, social and environmental challenges. These are some of the big issues keeping South Africans awake at night.

Eskom Chairman Jabu Mabuza will join global and local business influencers at the SA REIT Conference 2018 in Sandton Central next month.

France’s Unibail-Rodamco is Europe’s largest commercial landlord and is now expected to become the world’s largest shopping centre operator with its bid to buy Australian-listed retail property empire Westfields.

The FTSE/JSE South African Listed Property Index (SAPY) achieved total returns of 17.2% in 2017, building on its performance of returns of 10.2% in 2016, to deliver double-digit growth to investors for the second year in succession.

South African REITs (real estate investment trusts) once again ranked high among the country’s top companies earning the most for shareholders.

Responsible for overseeing the investments of one of Europe’s largest shopping centre owners, Unibail-Rodamco CFO, Jaap L. Tonckens, will explore the latest REIT trends and investor sentiments in Western Europe at the SA REIT Conference 2018.

Running for its eighth consecutive year, the Africa Property Investment (API) Summit & Expo, which takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre this week (Thursday 24 and Friday 25th August 2017), promises to put Africa’s retail sector in the spotlight.
