Next stop Côte d’Azur for RSM’s European Real Estate Group

RSM, the leading audit, tax and consulting firm, will send its newly formed cross-border real estate advisory team to MIPIM, the annual international real estate summit in Cannes, South of France, which starts on Tuesday 13 March and concludes on Friday 16 March.

The team, which spans five major European hubs, will be represented by senior members of its London, Amsterdam and Paris-based teams. They will combine to host clients, peers and stakeholders at a private lunch, and separately over 100 attendees at a private drinks reception near the waterfront.

Howard Freedman, RSM UK head of real estate and construction comments:

‘We look forward to catching up with clients and contacts both new and old. MIPIM provides a fantastic opportunity to not just network, but share news and views with those we want to support and advise.

‘Our new cross-border team combines a wide range of sector expertise as one integrated unit operating throughout Western Europe. We have the skills and experience, not to mention a deep understanding of how investors think, to provide those operating within the property investment sphere with the necessary local knowledge and global expertise.’

The move to establish an integrated cross-border network to support investors entering new markets involves a direct response to the UK’s impending departure from the EU. It also follows the findings of its latest survey to business leaders which highlighted that 45 per cent of UK-based investors have increased their focus on mainland Europe in their search to deploy capital.

The cross-border team attending MIPIM will represent a broader team that operates from five key hubs in Berlin, Paris, London, Amsterdam and Luxembourg whilst drawing upon the strengths of its wider regional offices within Germany, France, The UK and The Netherlands.

The European Real Estate Group provides tax advice and accounting, assurance services and consulting to real estate funds, investors and developers, offering in-depth local and sector knowledge to match the needs of investors and developers across Europe.
