The risk issue

Oliver Parsons

Editor of Modus (RICS)

Risk versus reward: it’s an age-old conflict ever-present in the worlds of economics and finance.

Modus - risk issue

Many factors can contribute to the success or failure of a real estate development or investment and, as more investors pile into the market in search of a safe haven for their money, how far up the risk curve should they be travelling to secure a decent return?

In this month’s risk-themed issue, we examine how professionals working in the built environment sectors approach these risks, and learn from surveyors who have had to react to such situations.

Also in this edition

We count the cost of the built environment’s carbon footprint; ask whether the construction industry is doing enough to keep its workers safe; learn how calculating a city’s resilience can inform a company’s investment strategy; and ask some of the industry’s sharpest minds how we can clean up the sometimes murky world of labour supply chains.
