Business Day reports that Developers, investors, high net-worth individuals, private wealth managers, asset management top executives and real estate investors’ trust who will be gathering at a breakfast session in Lagos next week have been promised of exciting and fulfilling moment as Pat Utomi, an economist and thought leader, will be offering insights on the economy and how it impacts the real estate sector.
The breakfast session being convened by Fine and Country West Africa with the theme ‘Economic and Real Estate Outlook 2017’, will also be featuring Udo Okonjo, Fine and Country’s CEO, as host speaker, offering an operator’s perspective on strategic real estate opportunities in 2017.
