Nareit and EPRA Team Up on European Investor Outreach Meetings

Nareit and the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) joined forces earlier this month for a series of investor outreach meetings in Europe. Nareit Senior Vice President for Investment Affairs and Investor Education Meredith Despins and members of EPRA’s investor outreach team met with major investment organizations in Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Norway.

Meetings were conducted with executive decision makers at 17 organizations, including pension funds, sovereign funds, investment consultants, investment managers, and insurance companies, including notably, the Norwegian Ministry of Finance, Zurich Insurance, APG, PGGM, the Church of England Pension Scheme, and Shell Asset Management Company. The total aggregated assets under management and advisement of these organizations is approximately $3 trillion.

This is the eighth year that Nareit and EPRA have collaborated in joint investor outreach meetings in Europe, providing an important opportunity for Nareit and EPRA to leverage the research and industry perspectives of both organizations to deliver a unified and coherent global perspective on the real estate investment proposition through listed REITs and real estate equities worldwide.
