Joint Monthly Luncheon: Mr Christopher Dillon Award-winning writer, entrepreneur and Principal of Dillon Communications Ltd – Priced out of Paradise

September 3, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Swiss Association & Swiss Chamber of Commerce

Joint Monthly Luncheon

“Priced out of Paradise?”

Guest Speaker: Mr Christopher Dillon Award-winning writer, entrepreneur and Principal of Dillon Communications Ltd

As Hong Kong property prices set records, many people are looking overseas for homes and investment properties. In this presentation, Christopher Dillon, author of the Landed series of real estate books, describes alternatives to Hong Kong real estate, with examples from Australia, Canada, China, Japan, Singapore and more. The presentation covers practical aspects of overseas property, including taxes, financing, ownership restrictions, off the plan purchases and checklists that can help buyers avoid expensive surprises.

About the guest speaker: Mr Christopher Dillon is an award-winning writer and entrepreneur based in Hong Kong. In 2002, he bought and renovated a floor in an office building in Hong Kong’s Central business district. Since then, he has purchased and refurbished a luxury apartment on the west side of Hong Kong Island and transformed a derelict steam laundry into a multimedia studio. He began investing in Japanese real estate in 2010 and has served on the management committee of a 210-unit apartment complex in Hong Kong since 2012. That experience inspired four books: Landed Hong Kong (2008), Landed Japan (2010), Landed China (2013) and Landed Global—which includes case studies and data from more than 110 countries and territories—in 2014. A second edition of Landed Hong was published in 2015, and an expanded and revised edition of Landed Japan was released in 2018. A native of Canada, Mr Dillon lived in Tokyo from 1989 to 1992. He appears regularly in the international media, as both a contributor and a guest.
