Quay podcast: House prices in 2022 and beyond

Chris Bedingfield shares his views on Australia’s favourite topic.


“When you look at our portfolio globally, we have quite a lot of residential – mainly in the United States, but also in Europe. We like residential because it’s a needs-based asset, it tends to be very resilient to any technological change … and it’s got relatively low maintenance capex.”
