The annual Refined Investor Series 2020 was a huge success (or if you prefer- another mega-hit!). Fine & Country West Africa in collaboration with PwC and Udo Udoma & Belo-Osagie (as knowledge partners) presented a platform for high level, accurate, current & expert real estate insights, intelligence & solutions for the real estate industry with a special feature on the State of the Nigerian Real Estate Market Report.

This year’s edition themed FOCUS 2020: The State of the Nigerian Real Estate Market took a multi-dimensional approach to point smart investors to strategic collaborations as well as guide them through efficient visioning, planning, and management of their real estate investments. Fine and Country West Africa led conversations addressing the current state of the real estate market, regulatory updates, challenges, opportunities, new growth areas and the focus for the year 2020 with a vast contribution from our multi-sector speakers from the marketing, legal, taxation, and financial perspectives.

The following action points were discussed at the Refined Investor Series 2020:
