DFT to host filmed roundtable on underserved areas of the property development market

Next week, Development Finance Today will host its fifth filmed roundtable event in association with Watson Farley & Williams.

The invitation-only roundtable — which is supported by Aldermore and Castle Trust — will be held on Wednesday 23rd October at Watson Farley & Williams’ offices at 15 Appold Street, London.

The agenda will feature a discussion on which areas of the property development market are currently underserved and where the most opportunity lies.

John Carter, commercial director — commercial real estate at Aldermore; and Simon Whitfield, head of development finance at Castle Trust; will be joined by Ranjeev Kumar, partner at Watson Farley & Williams.

Also in attendance will be Donna Downey, senior commercial manager at Watts Commercial Finance; Edward Clark, adviser at Uplift Finance; and Giulio D’Andrea, marketing director at Green Life Buildings Ltd. 

The roundtable will be chaired by Development Finance Today’s editor Beth Fisher. 

The attendees will also discuss which asset classes have the most and least development funding options, whether there are enough products for developers wanting longer-term finance and how all parties in the transaction chain can help mitigate the complexities and risks involved in underserved areas. 

We will also deliberate how brokers can support and add value to both developers and lenders in these areas.

The 45-minute session will be filmed and uploaded as a 10-minute highlights reel on Development Finance Today in November on our brand new Roundtables page.

While this is the last filmed roundtable event of 2019, Development Finance Today will be continuing the series in February, April, May, September and October 2020.

If you are interested in getting involved with or sponsoring any of these future events and would like to suggest topics, please contact Development Finance Today’s editor Beth Fisher at or on 0203 818 0165.
