While the economy faces risks of a slowdown, a strong labor market has supported consumer spending. Our presenters will evaluate risks to the economic expansion and impact of uncertain monetary policy. With higher mortgage rates sending affordability and activity in the housing market plummeting, they will discuss the outlook for the U.S. residential real estate market. Following its best year ever in 2021, the U.S. commercial real estate (CRE) market is correcting. They will discuss opportunities in CRE-related investments in the context of the macro environment, as well as the outlook for various CRE sectors. 

The topics covered will be:

  • The likely policy response to economic uncertainty in 2023 
  • Is housing poised for a rebound? The 2023 outlook
  • The outlook for opportunities in commercial real estate
