AREF have launched a Technology Working Group, to be chaired by Charles Kerrigan, partner at CMS. There are an increasing number of proptech firms providing a multitude of services to our industry and furthermore, fractionising real estate through tokenisation and digital assets is now emerging. It is important for AREF to keep pace with these exciting technologies and discuss and debate their developing applications with our members.

AREF Tech Working Group will look at major technological innovations that may make a material contribution to property funds and the wider real estate industry. Initial focus will include the development of various solutions utilising blockchain and the use of artificial intelligence. The working group will consider these, the various players working on them and ensure members are made aware of developments; e.g. through commissioning studies and/or events to assist with a greater understanding within our membership.

If you are interested in joining the group please email info@aref.org.uk


Don't miss our event 'The democratisation of Real Estate? Tokenisation and other solutions.' on Wednesday 5th February 2020 at Fidelity's offices.
