The ICSH Housing Finance Conference has firmly established itself as the leading finance focused event for housing practitioners. Since its establishment in 2008, the event has grown from strength to strength and has been to the forefront in addressing the significant changes in the financial operating environment for housing associations.
This year the Conference explored the provisions within the Government’s recently published Action Plan, ‘Rebuilding Ireland’, and addressed and linked the Financing, Delivery and Management challenges in meeting expectation and ambition towards a more appropriate housing supply. In fulfilling delivery requirements, the Conference explored the financial rightsizing of the sector, looking at new state funding investment, loan finance mechanisms — including lender requirements — while also addressing innovative strategic funding options to address off balance sheet requirements. With high delivery expectations, the conference linked financial arrangements to explore a range of delivery options to accelerate provision with key stakeholder perspectives from both the public and private sector on potential collaborative and supportive delivery arrangements, and the need to deliver value for money. The conference explored housing management practices in meeting special needs accommodation provision, and also asset management requirements from regulatory and operational perspectives, drawing on good practice and experiences from Ireland and abroad.
