Solving Real Estate Investment Problems with Financial Models

What’s the most valuable asset you have? Most of us would say it’s the house. And to finance that house, you probably have to get a mortgage from the bank. For many of us, if we couldn’t get access to a mortgage, we couldn’t buy the house. 

Dr. Pereira went on to explain the individual example of financing a house using a mortgage shows how debt translates to the more professional level of the investment world—many projects that you see all around you only happen because of access to debt.

Dr. Ricardo Pereira has been a fund manager for more than 10 years and is a leading academic and practitioner in the property finance markets in the United Kingdom and worldwide. He is specialising in the development of innovative approaches to large scale property investment products and consultancy on emerging debt & derivatives markets.
