Investor perceptions: How health and wellbeing are seen as a value driver in real estate

Wellness Real Estate & Communities Symposium
Tuesday, September 28, 8:00 AM-4:00 PM ET • In Person NYC & Virtual

(session length: 30-40 mins)

In the face of COVID-19, it has become increasingly clear that real estate investment decisions—and returns—are inextricably linked to the health and wellbeing of building occupants and the surrounding community.

This panel discussion will highlight findings from “A New Investor Consensus,” a recent study published by the Center for Active Design (operator of Fitwel), which represents the largest health and wellness survey of global real estate investment managers ever conducted—reflecting US$5.75 trillion total AUM.

Recognizing that 87% of survey respondents report increased demand for healthy buildings over the past 12 to 24 months, and 92% expect this demand to grow over the next three years, panelists will highlight practical implications for supporting health and wellbeing via ESG investment decisions, healthy building certifications, occupant engagement and more.

A conversation with:

  • Joanna Frank, President & CEO, Center for Active Design
  • Kevin Davis, Senior Managing Director, Capital Markets, JLL
  • Eric Duchon, Global Head of Real Estate ESG, Blackstone
  • Jonathan Flaherty, Global Head of Sustainability and Building Technology Innovation, Tishman Speyer
