AHIC 2021 SPEAKERS

Our annual Advisory Board meeting is an essential component of the programming for AHIC, and we are incredibly grateful for the input of all members. Every year, the discussion is different and this debate was dominated by a clear focus on the costs of development versus the reality of returns. There was a thirst for knowledge around issues such as risk adjustment and returns, supply and security, facilitation of foreign investment, ownership models and even exit strategies for distressed assets.
