Housing associations are tackling their biggest risks

Zurich Municipal and Inside Housing brought together an expert panel to discuss the biggest risks for housing associations, and how well placed they are to tackle them.

The panel included:

  • Matthew Bailes, Executive Director for Regulation, HCA (taking up the post of chief executive at Paradigm Housing Group in the autumn)
  • Hugo Foxwood, Associate Director, Standard & Poor’s
  • Richard Wood, Head of Housing and Health, Zurich Municipal

The session explored the key risk priorities linked to the changing political and financial environment. These risks are driving a growing trend towards diversification and new business and funding models, as landlords look for new and innovative ways to meet demand and deliver their services.

The discussion also highlighted the pressures and strategic considerations that housing associations need to address as they adapt to these growing trends.
