“Are safe havens always preferable to higher risk places?” PERE Asia Panel

“Are safe havens always preferable to higher risk places?”. This was the panel discussion moderated the other week by Robert Ciemniak, the Founder-CEO of Real Estate Foresight, at the 11th PERE Asia Summit in Hong Kong. As the rich pricing in the gateway cities continues to direct investors’ interest (though not necessarily action, as the discussion suggested) to secondary locations in search for higher yields, are these worth the risks? The panel compared the US, UK, Eurozone, and Japan markets.
