Savill’s Faisal Choudhry joins the bill for the fifth annual conference, to provide his analysis of the UK property market. Faisal will be sharing his expertise from over 15 years with Savills, drawing upon the bespoke market research they produce for developers, investors and financial institutions across the UK.
