Session 1| Investing into Real Estate in Japan

Japan has been leading real estate headlines with reports that total foreign investments into Japan's real estate market had risen 45% in the first half of 2023 compared to the same period last year. Foreign real estate buyers have been investing into Japan real estate, purchasing properties like logistics facilities, commercial and residential properties due to the country's low interest rate.

The nuances of Japanese real estate investments, coupled with emerging trends, call for a comprehensive understanding. But while savvy investors may be familiar with the TMK structure, TK/GK structures, and other acquisition methods, the real challenge remains in deciding on the most suitable structure for each unique situation.

Join us as we delve into the intricacies of Japanese real estate investments including:

  • Current trends in the Japanese real estate market
  • An in-depth exploration of the various investment structures
  • Key points every investor should consider when looking at the Japanese market
  • Practical tips to maximize your investment returns

Session 2| Hong Kong Investment Funds for Real Estate Investment 

Despite the economic challenges and uncertainties that have impacted Hong Kong in recent years, the city has maintained its status as the premier international asset management hub in Asia. As reported by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, Hong Kong has also retained its position as a leading cross-border wealth management and asset management centre in Asia, as well as being the second largest private equity centre after Mainland China in Asia. The thriving Asian markets will continue to provide ample opportunities for fund managers looking to base their operations and invest in the region.

In this session, our speakers will dive deep into the regulatory, legal and tax fundamentals and explore the diverse array of flexible fund structures available in Hong Kong and Cayman Islands, tailored to accommodate asset classes, risk profiles, investor preferences and flexible use.
