The Counselors Webinar Series 2020

Session 2: Global Real Estate and Geopolitical Asset Allocation: Where to Invest Amidst COVID-19?

Date: June 11, 2020
Time: 2:00 PM Eastern, 1:00 PM Central, 12:00 PM Mountain, 11:00 AM Pacific

Speaker: Alexis Crow, Ph.D., Lead, Geopolitical Investing Practice, PwC
Moderator: Mario Lefebvre, CRE, Vice President, Research, Global Real Estate Markets, Ivanhoe Cambridge Inc., Montreal, QC

Introductions: Michel Couillard, CRE, FRICS2020 Global Chair, The Counselors of Real Estate

From both a geopolitical and macroeconomic perspective, Dr. Alexis Crow combines practice and theory into a captivating presentation offering a lens through which dislocations in the market are identified, opening your eyes to the global economic environment, the current and predicted geopolitical landscape, and the COVID-19 implications on the future of office, retail, residential, industrial, and hospitality: what Dr. Crow calls the “real estate food groups.”

What will the shape of the recovery look like?  What will be the effect, if any, of the multi-phased U.S. fiscal stimulus? What’s the future of the workplace and where will our time be spent?

Do the trends of localization, on-shoring and near-shoring represent the end of globalization?  How will the U.S. recovery differ from that of the European Union? What’s the prognosis for U.S.-China relations….and how will it affect the U.S. and global markets?

Join The Counselors of Real Estate on June 11 as Dr. Crow and Mr. Lefebvre engage in dialogue—complemented by your questions—that will be entertaining, compelling, and most of all, informing.

Alexis Crow, Ph.D., leads the Geopolitical Investing Practice at PwC, advising leading companies and asset managers on capitalizing on dislocations to increase profits and facilitate global expansion.  She is a member of the Global Futures Council on Geopolitics for the World Economic Forum, a Senior Fellow and guest lecturer at Columbia Business School, and a Senior Fellow in the Global Business and Economics Program at the Atlantic Council in Washington D.C.  Dr. Crow holds a Ph.D. from the London School of Economics and Political Science.  She is fluent in French and Spanish, and has a working knowledge of the Portuguese and Italian languages.
