FCC Club Lunch with ZHANG Xin
Speaker: ZHANG Xin
CEO & Co-Founder, SOHO China
Topic: Outlook of the Chinese Real Estate Market
While tightening measures targeting China’s residential property sector have led to record low performances, office rental yields have risen 50% in Beijing and 16% in Shanghai over the last year. ZHANG Xin, CEO and co-founder of Beijing’s largest commercial real estate developer, SOHO China, will share her outlook on China ’s real estate market, and why commercial property may be the only bright spot in China ’s property market at present. Success in China real estate, ZHANG Xin has said, comes down to anticipating what the government will do next.
ZHANG, who founded Soho with her husband in 1995 when she was 30, was named by Fortune magazine as one of “the world’s most powerful women” last year. The former Goldman Sachs analyst is a member of the Asia Business Council and is a board member for the Council on Foreign Relations.
