Perspectives on property-Summer 2017

It is no surprise that housing - or rather the lack of it - features strongly in the sixth edition of Perspectives, Property Week’s series of thought leadership essays from key industry figures.

Property is an energised and energising industry to be a part of. The flipside of that is that it can be difficult to step back and, well, get a bit of perspective. As ever, we hope this collection of essays provides just that.

This volume contains insights from:

  • Mike Cook (Yardi)
  • Rod Lockhart (LendInvest Capital)
  • Justin Faiz (Pluto Finance)
  • Derek Griffin (Whitbread)
  • Vicky Cotton (Workman)

We hope you find their insights thought-provoking.

Perspectives on property-Mipim 2017

If there is an overriding theme to this edition of Perspectives it is connectivity. And for those of you reading this from a deckchair at Mipim, that doesn’t just mean the availability - or lack of availability - of a taxi to and from Nice.

Rather, connectivity is covered in all its forms: the importance of excellent transport links, high-speed internet connections, interpersonal relationships and more.

The aim of Perspectives is to step back from the day-to-day and look at the bigger picture through a series of thought-leadership essays.

This volume contains insights from:

  • John Clements (Verdion)
  • John Gravett (Cluttons)
  • Stephanie Smith (Yardi)
  • Stephen Wasserman (West One Loans)
  • Chris Pomphrey (Euroclad)
  • Kevin Nowlan (Hibernia REIT)
  • Lynda Shillaw (MAG Property)

We hope you find their insights thought-provoking.

Perspectives on property-Winter 2016



When talk turns to the sharing economy, most people think of Zipcar, Uber, Airbnb or some other hip new digital services.

But is that really the limit of what the concept entails?

This issue contains insights from:

  • Martin Betts (Yardi)
  • Lynda Shillaw (MAG Property)
  • Stephen Wasserman (West One Loans)
  • Dr Steven Norris (Carter Jonas)
  • Mark Bruno (Datscha)
  • Gareth Lewis (PwC)
