Real Estate Gazette – Issue 23: Special Issue: DLA Piper’s 1st European Real Estate Summit

We would like to welcome all our readers to this special issue of DLA Piper’s Real Estate Gazette, which presents material tied to the specialized topics under discussion at our first European Real Estate Summit, to be held at the Landmark Hotel in London on Tuesday 1 March 2016. The theme of our Summit,“Navigating Complexity in Diversified Markets”, acknowledges the challenges to be faced in allocating money in a European market which is becoming increasingly diverse, both geographically and from an asset class perspective. In this issue of the Gazette, we give our readers an insight into a huge variety of topics that concern leading experts from the European real estate industry.

Since the onset of the global financial crisis of 2007/8 changes in the way real estate is financed and the drivers behind that have been a key concern. Our first International article (page 6) examines a recent trend in pan-European re financing, where deals are structured on an individualized approach, with no requirement for cross-collateralization. Although acknowledging that this approach places more risk on the lenders, the authors predict that

it is likely to be used more often in the context of a borrower-friendly market.Articles from the Middle East (page 12—highlighting Islamic finance as a viable alternative to conventional debt funding that facilitates the use of capital from outside Europe), and the Netherlands (page 14—discussing recent case law developments affecting the VAT liability of real estate investment funds) conclude this section.
