• RICS to lead discussion on Asia’s emerging silver hair market at Annual Hong Kong Conference

    24 March 2016

    RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) is hosting its Hong Kong Annual Conference to examine the economic opportunities and challenges arising from an emerging silver hair market. Hong Kong is entering an era in which nearly one in every three residents will turn 65 within the next 20 years. The senior market investment potential is huge, according to RICS, but its business opportunities are still undiscovered locally. The conference takes place at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong on Friday 20 May 2016. RICS will examine the business and investment potentials with local investors, and present successful cases from overseas mature markets in order to develop a viable model for the Hong Kong market and policy makers.


    The conference will begin with a critical review of the current market by public and private sector professionals, followed by an analysis of business models established in mature Japan and USA economies. Investors will evaluate Hong Kong’s potential conditions and returns, and local specialists will deliberate its challenges and propose strategies specific to the region. The conference will conclude with an address about labour and supply needs for an ageing population.

    “The next investment boom revolves around the burgeoning elderly population”, said Mr Andrew Lee FRICS, Chair of RICS Hong Kong Board. “Our Hong Kong Annual Conference will feature key market strategists who have capitalized on this global trend, and they will share insider knowledge with ambitious business owners and investors who attend”, he added.

    The RICS conference is also an opportunity for students and recent graduates to meet future employer through attending a career advice session. Young professionals will have direct conversation with senior business leaders and recruitment officers from Hong Kong’s top property and real estate companies.
