On Friday July 20, over 350 property professionals attended the Property Council’s 2012-13 Financial Year Outlook lunch.
Col Robertshaw, National Head of Property Finance at Commonwealth Bank gave the event's keynote presentation. Mr Robertshaw gave a holistic view of the property industry outlook over the next 12 months based on the Commonwealth Bank’s appetite in each sector. He discussed the strong appeal of the commercial and industrial markets based on recent limited supply, but that the residential market in Queensland remained quite flat when compared to other Australian states. Despite the appeal of the office market in Brisbane Mr Robershaw stressed there is still little appetite for risk, and the Commonwealth Bank continues to seek pre-commitments and focuses on experience and track records when lending.
This led into our panel discussion with Steve De Nys, Joint Head of Division: Industrial at Savills, Bruce Harper, General Manger: Investa Land Qld, Investa Property Group and Matt Kearney, National Director, Colliers International. The in-depth question session allowed our panel to discuss their opinions of the commercial, industrial and residential sectors and the financial year outlook for the industry.
Thanks must go to our sponsors, Savills Project Management. Without their support this event would not be possible.
