QCP’s Views on the Global Real Estate Market [March 11 Conference Recording]

Quilvest Capital Partners appreciates all of the interest and participation in our March 11, 2021 Real Estate Conference.

We had the pleasure the share our view on why we believe today to be a good time to invest in Real Estate. Undeniably, the current economy will benefit to specific geographies and themes, which are key components of our latest program’s strategy and approach.

Since we launched our Real Estate activity, we have been developing local networks of relationships. This allowed us to access attractive opportunities in the value-add space, and we will keep developing these relationships to ensure an optimal portfolio construction.

This conference was the starting point of a discussion we would be delighted to have with you on how to enhance your exposure to this asset class.

Best regards,

The Quilvest Capital Partners Team
