Chairman’s Welcome

“The Credit Crunch and its aftermath have forced Real Estate and Capital Markets to converge spawning innovative solutions for the property portfolio fund management industry. Short term property ‘market risk’ management is one such innovation that has finally come of age, enabled by the critical mass of knowledge and modern multi-asset capabilities within the larger real estate institutions. Centrally cleared ‎‎MSCI-IPD Property Futures traded on the Eurex Exchange are the tool by which this is accomplished. ‎‎These standardised annual contracts can be used for a multitude of trading strategies and can assist with your liquidity constraints. The emphasis on the short term allows fund managers to manage their property portfolios in ‘real time’ in a way that was hitherto not possible. This additional tool, in the fund manager’s armoury, is giving those institutions set up to trade a competitive advantage, enabling them to achieve their required portfolio effects and returns over the forthcoming 12-18 month period, without delay and at little cost. Such trading strategies include: diversification, portfolio re-balancing, protection of capital values and cash management. By having access to the ARCA Platform, you will be empowered to develop and originate trading strategies for your funds and your clients. I‎ have no doubt that Arca PRM, along with the support of MSCI and the Eurex Exchange, will continue to grow volumes over the next decade and that you, and your organisation, will be at the forefront of one of the most exciting developments in property portfolio management of this decade.”
