Dean François Ortalo-Magné presented the findings of a survey of the European economy at MIPIM 2012 during his keynote address on the final day of the conference. Ortalo-Magné and Mark Roberts, global head of research at RREEF, discussed the major themes and takeaways from the week in Cannes.
The survey looked at respondents' uncertainity about the current state of real estate markets and investing in Europe, the European economy, the effect that MIPIM has had on investment and the positive outlook that investors have towards the future.
