The CULS Asia-Pacific Forum is based in London and has been established with the aim of promoting inward investment into the UK from Asia-Pacific investors and to act as a network for CULS members to gain information, contacts and expertise in relation to the Asia-Pacific real estate market.
The ultimate aim is to establish and develop a CULS Asia-Pacific Chapter which would operate on similar lines and would host similar events to those run by CULS in London. However, in the shorter term, the fundamental aim of the CULS Asia-Pacific Forum is to forge closer links between Cambridge alumni who do business in the Asia-Pacific real estate market.
The influx of investment into London from investors from the Asia-Pacific region in recent years, including from China, Singapore and South Korea means that there has never been a better time to create a network to forge closer links between Cambridge alumni working in different sectors of the Asia-Pacific real estate market including investors, architects, surveyors, engineers, financiers, accountants and lawyers.
It is hoped that the Asia-Pacific Forum will be of interest to the significant number of Cambridge University students from China and the wider Asia-Pacific region, many of whom return to the Asia-Pacific region after graduation.
The CULS Asia-Pacific Forum Committee comprises eight Cambridge alumni working in the international real estate market, all of whom have extensive experience of advising Asia-Pacific investors on inward investment into the UK.
During the course of 2016/17, the Committee is committed to working with the University’s Development and Alumni Relations Office and the Department of Land Economy to host events designed to promote the aims of the CULS Asia-Pacific Forum. Further information in relation to these events will be circulated in due course.
