    Investors Panel Discussion: How is the convergence of Capital Markets and Real Estate reshaping the way REITs and Investors assess returns

    In 2020 ESG focused equity investments outperformed traditional asset classes ie those without an ESG lens. In Q1 over US$12billion went into funds with a strong ESG practice and by October that year Morningstar reported that in the US alone, ESG focused equity funds attracted almost US$31bilion. This shift is occurring now in the real estate with investors helping to drive the much-needed change for property owners to focus on reducing emissions, water consumption and to build and maintain their buildings more sustainably. In this session with leading Australian property fund managers, we explore:

    • How institutional and HNW investors are changing the rules for real estate companies in relation to climate. From a fund managers perspective, what do they need to do/change in order to commit to this change?
    • As climate risk factors into investment decision making, what opportunities do sustainable/resilient real estate create for investors and fund managers?
    • What are the investment strategies and current views in relation to ESG?
    • Providing effective shareholder communication and meeting unified reporting obligations
    • Balancing social and environmental benefits with investors’ expectations of return?
    • How do you talk to property owners about becoming climate technology investors?
    Panellists include:
    Ross Du Vernet Chief Investment Officer, Dexus
    Adrian Harrington Head of Capital & Product Development, Charter Hall
    Alicia Maynard General Manager, Sustainability & Technical Services, ISPT
    Patrick Harlalka Investment Manager, Panthera Group
