"Real estate: what place in the wealth of Europeans?"

On Wednesday 7 December 2016, the OEE organized a conference on "Real estate: what place in the wealth of Europeans?".

The conference was moderated by Christian Gollier, President of the OEE’s Scientific Committee, Philippe Bertrand, Professor at the Institute of Business Administration of Aix-en-Provence, Associate Professor at KEDGE Business School, Jean-Luc Prigent, Professor at the University of Cergy-Pontoise and Christian de Kerangal, Managing Director of the Institut de l'Epargne Immobilière et Foncière.

Christian Gollier presented work on the correlation between house prices and household consumption in a group of countries and the very long-term implicit discount rates in the residential real estate market in the United Kingdom.

The study presented by Philippe Bertrand and Jean-Luc Prigent shows that real estate is an effective diversification asset in Spain, France and UK but not in Germany.
