Liverpool is a vibrant city that has big plans. With developments such as Paddington Village, Littlewood Film Studios, Pall Mall and the ongoing delivery of the Knowledge Quarter. Post COVID-19, business owners of real estate are now keen to explore their options to consider alternatives to the more traditional routes of sale and leasebacks and bank financing when thinking about their re-financing.

In this webinar, our speakers discussed how investor appetite has changed and what the post pandemic repercussions might be for asset owners and for investors thinking about new investment opportunities.

The webinar addressed a number of pertinent real estate finance questions: –

  • How can real estate be more liquid for asset owners without creating risk to value for investors and owners?
  • What are the options for real estate owners when thinking about the alternative methods of financing?
  • Is there any change with banks and other lenders approach to real estate owners such as interest cover, extension to facilities and waivers?
  • What asset trading data is needed when making informed investment decisions?
  • How might asset and property management strategies need to change as a result of the pandemic?
  • Which sectors are likely to perform well such as pharmaceuticals, life sciences, healthcare, BTR and supermarket retail?
  • What options are being considered to further encourage new investment into the Liverpool City Region?
