The AREF Annual Dinner & Awards was launched in the late 1990s, to raise the profile of the Association and to create an opportunity for fund managers and their specialist advisors to network.  It has become a highlight in the real estate social calendar.

The dinner has hosted a vast array of speakers and entertainers, including:  Nina Conti, Lucy Porter, Lord Sebastian Coe, Rory Bremner, Ian Hislop and mind-reader Graham Jolly.

We are delighted to announce the return of the 2022 Annual Dinner & Awards, to be held at The Savoy Hotel on Tuesday 27th September 2022.

AREF Annual Awards

The AREF Annual Awards were introduced in 2011 to recognise AREF member funds that have consistently provided attractive, risk-adjusted performance to investors and to acknowledge member firms and individuals that have made exceptional contributions in supporting the work of AREF.

In 2019 the Investors Award for Outstanding Achievement was introduced, whereby funds were invited to make submissions based on three categories - last year included: governance; environmental and social impact; and investor communication.  The winner is then selected by a panel of investors.

To find out more information on the awards, including the purpose, selection criteria, selection process and previous winners, view our Annual Awards page here.
