In a recent interview with Hotel Management magazine RLA Group CEO, Roger Allen shares his insights for the "Med" region.

How do you see the current hospitality and leisure investment climate across the Mediterranean?

RA: The hospitality and leisure investment climate in the Med is positive and spurred by the opening of new destinations and new resorts.  Such growth, [while cause for optimism], is making the sector increasingly more competitive and consequently putting pressure on current resort and destinations to further invest in order to remain competitive. Obtaining and retaining the market position in a dynamically changing environment is a challenge and [causing] new and exciting products to be developed. For instance, new luxury lifestyle products that are environmentally conscious and evoke a more holistic wellbeing experience. Investment in senior living real estate, particularly from private equity is seeing a huge surge and we are pleased to be playing a role in its evolving landscape.
