About this event

Purpose-built student housing, coliving, and hybrid models are in the spotlight of alternative asset classes. Opportunistic investors and pioneers in PBSA have been quick to respond to this market development. Within The Class community alone, we’ve confirmed that leading investors in the niche residential ‘blended living’ asset classes are poised to invest around €25 billion globally over the next 3-5 years.

The Class Pan-European Summit will put investment in the spotlight as we join forces with Yolande Barnes, from UCL’s Bartlett Real Estate Institute. Yolande argues that alternatives with resilient business models should be assessed in a different light as value can increase and risk can be mitigated with a long-term perspective. With proper assessment capturing a new territory of environmental, demographic and technological risks and a long-term perspective, alternatives may deserve a lower risk profile, which will incentivize investors to deploy more money in the market. Will this be an innovative solution that can potentially solve the housing crisis?

The Class of 2020 will bring together the investment experts who will bring case studies to the table. The case studies and discussions will explore institutional investors’ opinions on the risk in residential models and provide evidence as to whether this shift towards alternatives is really happening.
