Development Funding and Risk Appetite

Development Funding and Risk Appetite

, |

2 min read

Estate Living joins Karl Bishop Head of Real Estate at Santam and Dr Roelof Botha and we discuss SA economic outlook and the important issue of development funding and real estate guarantees.

Every sector has been forced to evolve as a result of the global pandemic, including South Africa’s property development market. The sudden changes means that there is a need for clearer understanding of where the market currently is and the financial sector’s appetite for risk.

Partner in this webinar:

We provide a diverse range of general insurance products and services in southern Africa and internationally through a network of intermediaries and direct channels. We serve more than 1 million policyholders who range from individuals to commercial and specialist business owners and institutions.
