Here are some of the reasons provided by our investor and manager members for joining ANREV:
Nicholas Harris, Head of Wholesale of The GPT Group and ANREV Executive Board member says, "the main attraction for joining ANREV is its focus on the needs of investors in non-listed real estate vehicles in Asia who are my current and prospective investment partners. It is a wonderful forum to increase transparency, encourage best practice and share knowledge in an industry which has traditionally been opaque and noncollaborative."
Cheng-soon Lau, Managing Director of Invesco Real Estate is a founding member and believes: “ANREV is a platform for managers like us to advance the interests of our investors in Asia through forums, benchmark development and research. ”
Wilson Leung, Managing Director of Angelo Gordon Asia Limited says, “ANREV is an important organization which will bring much needed transparency and clarity for investors who have invested or are looking to invest in the Asian non-listed real estate industry. ”
Richard Price, CEO of CBRE Global Investors joined the ANREV Executive Board in 2009, recognising that “in these uniquely challenging times providing an industry platform to promote transparency within the private equity real estate fund industry in Asia is more important than ever.
ANREV’s mission to do this and provide a forum for research, the exchange of fund information and a platform to promote interaction with investors and like minded industry associations around the world is well aligned with that of CBRE Global Investors. ANREV’s growth and success demonstrates the growing importance of the Asia region for institutional investors from around the world not to mention the growing importance of Asian institutions on the global investment stage.”
