Session 1:‘PE funds and financial institutions view—Strategies for the next phase of growth’
Panel discussion
The PE funds and financial institutions have replaced banks as the largest source of funding to the real estate sector. The share of PE funds and these institutions in the real estate funding has gone up significantly from 25 per cent in 2010 to over 75 per cent in 2016 . The investments are further likely to increase in future.

As Indian real estate expected to move up the risk curve, it is likely that the cost of funds may reduce. The session would gauge the perception of the PE investors towards the Indian realty, and discuss the strategies for the next phase of growth.

Session 2:‘Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) - Opening doors to funding’
Panel discussion
The regulatory changes, coupled with clarity on taxation aspects, have put in place an all-encompassing framework for successful REIT implementation in India. However, these efforts by policymakers are yet to be complemented by a forthcoming stakeholder class and, therefore, India is yet to witness its first REIT listing. While there is a visible interest amongst many of the marquee players to set up the REIT platform for providing exits to investors as well as monetisation, there are several apprehensions surrounding this new investment product. Thus, actual action has been slow and, in many cases, put in abeyance in favour of a 'wait and watch' strategy.

The session would enable the esteemed panellists to share the potential reasons for this inertia to launch the first REIT.
