HOUSTON (November 6, 2014) – Bruce Hawley, executive vice president, director Stewart Title Commercial Services will speak at the Foreign Country Seminar Real Estate Finance hosted by the vdpPfandbriefAkademie, an affiliate of Verband Deutscher Pfandbriefbanken (vdp), the Association of German Pfandbrief Banks.

The event is being held in Berlin on November 20, 2014. Hawley’s presentation will address how the United States tracks real estate ownership, the land recording system and the fundamentals of title insurance.

“For foreign investors, the process of land ownership, recording, and the purchase of title insurance varies tremendously country by country,” said Hawley. “I feel honored to help educate the attendees on the U.S. real estate process, and in turn learn more about the intricacies of international real estate.”

The seminar focuses on experienced real estate finance specialists and appraisers from banks, appraisal companies and lawyers from all over Germany who work transnationally. The Association of German Pfandbriefbanks is one of five leading organizations in the German banking sector, and represents financiers for residential and commercial constructions as well as the state and its institutions.
