European real estate

Continental European real estate currently offers some of the best value in the developed world, supported by an increasingly positive economic outlook. Occupier demand is on the rise, and we expect that rental growth will accelerate over the short to medium term, which should deliver a growing income stream for investors.

Top three trends in continental Europe's property market:

  • Political risks are receding, while Eurozone GDP forecasts have been upgraded
  • Coupled with the weight of capital driving down yields, we expect continued strong return performance from Europe
  • Following in the steps of the UK and US, e-commerce drivers expected to boost logistics rental growth
