The Economic Research Council’s annual “Boom or Bust” property discussion takes place tomorrow (Tuesday 16th June), with a stellar panel lined up to provide a thoroughly expert, balanced and informed perspective of current market conditions – and of what we can expect in the near future. Altogether fine fodder for discussing at the Lonres Summer Party the following evening (Wednesday 17th June).
As an added incentive, a limited number of the all-new Summer edition of PrimeResi’s Quarterly Journal will be available – hot off the presses – to attendees for free. This is a 476-page bumper issue, published in association with Harrods Estates and kindly supported by Linley, Hanover Private Office, Londonewcastle, and Masterpiece London.
The discussion is being chaired by Parthenia’s James Wyatt. Here are his opening remarks to whet your appetite:
My Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen
On behalf of the Economic Research Council I welcome you to the third annual property talk at the Royal Geographic Society. Tonight we have four of the most prominent property professionals to give their view on the market and the prospects ahead.
With Peter Rollings, Managing Director of Marsh & Parsons we have one of the most successful agents of our time, who was awarded an honorary fellowship from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. Peter will give us a selling agents view as to what is happening. Peter will be followed by Charlie Ellingworth, a founder member of Property Vision, probably the largest and most successful buying agent in the UK. Charlie is an author and an astute observer of the market and the latest fads and fashions and he will explain the buyers viewpoint (he probably writes the best market comment). We are extremely fortunate to also have Paul McFadyen address us. Paul is Managing Director of Regis and was formerly a police officer. Being one of the largest investors in residential property and ground rents he will be able to offer insight from the investors perspective. Last and by certainly no means least we have Lucian Cook who is probably the best known market commentator, as he is forever gracing the front pages of the FT to the Telegraph. As head of residential research at Savills he will be able to explain the trends and the outlook.
Each speaker will have ten minutes and then afterwards we will take questions from the audience, be warned questions will be limited to one short sentence.
Is the market going to sail on serenely or are there choppy seas ahead? Without further ado I hand you over to Peter…
Find out what Peter and the rest of panel have to say on Tuesday (16th June) at the Royal Geographical Society…
