Investors “Cannot Ignore” U.K. Real Estate, Charls Says

Philip Charls, CEO of the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA), joined for a video interview at REITWorld 2016: NAREIT’s Annual Convention for All Things REIT at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge.

Charls commented on the impact of Brexit on European commercial real estate. He noted that while U.K. total returns, as measured by FTSE EPRA/NAREIT indices, were weaker than the rest of Europe on a year-to-date basis, returns were much more closely aligned over a five-year period.
