We have a great line-up of speakers for our finance conference on 16 May 2013. Full programme shortly available.
After a busy 2012 – £3.9 billion raised on the public bond markets alone – can the sector sit back and focus on its commitments and aims?
Less than ever it seems. In the new environment a housing association hoping to play it safe is walking into unknown territory – so does consciously opting to be adventurous increase risk?
We take a look at this and other questions likely to come up in 2013 and beyond in our finance conference on Thursday 16th May: ‘New Risks, New Rewards’.
We will cover modelling and planning for the new risk landscape and whether the sector has the tools for the job.
Meanwhile individual housing associations face restricted revenues and difficult growth – we ask how viability can be achieved in this environment.
The causes of the instability include the coalition government’s mid-term strategies of inflation caps – and how they compound concerns about the introduction of Universal Credit.
If Universal Credit is supposed to encourage tenants to manage their finances independently then an inflation cap on any part of their income cannot be isolated from their ability to pay rent.
Our speakers will also tackle funding, the private rented sector, local authority joint ventures and the fate of SHPS.
