Moody’s 2nd Annual UK Housing Conference

London, 31 October 2018

With only three weeks to go and over 150 market participants registered we would encourage you to join us for our UK Housing Conference.

Brexit raises the prospect of weakened consumer sentiment, decreased lending appetite and reduced investment in new construction. Join us as our analysts and guest speakers will look at the shape of the market in the UK over the next 18 months.

The agenda and guest speakers are outlined below, on the day we will discuss:

  • Brexit: Moody's views on Brexit and UK housing
  • Forward Looking Views: UK Housing Supply - what will be the drivers for growth over the next 18 months
  • Demographic Changes: Debate the fundamental shift in mortgage products
  • Environmental Factors: The constraints on building eco-friendly homes

Book your complimentary seat to network with your peers, investors, issuers and credit analysts, and get involved with the discussion on the trends that will have an influence in 2019.
