PFA Learning Series – Raising and Deploying Capital in a Pandemic

Hosted by Centuria, our Fund Managers will discuss Raising and Deploying Capital in a Pandemic.

Both capital inflows and capital deployment have been stronger than might have been expected through the Pandemic period. Steve Bennet, Mark Pratt and Ben Harrop from Fund Managers, Charter Hall, Australian Unity and Centuria, which together represent approximately $60 billion in property FUM, with over $35 billion of that in unlisted property, will reflect on this time. They will discuss the challenges, successes and processes of raising capital before, during and as we emerge from COVID; from the perspective of retail, wholesale and sophisticated investors. They will also look on how they have deployed capital, how they have managed physical inspections, consultants & due diligence; what have been the differences between 2021 and 2020 in terms of opportunities, pricing and thematics; and what are the factors that have supported the funds and enabled them to continue to buy assets and deploy capital.

Moderated by Melissa Kingham, PFA Vice President and Director of Haben Property Group our speakers include: Steven Bennett, Charter Hall; Mark Pratt, Australian Unity Group and Ben Harrop, Centuria
