Real estate is with 5-15% weight one of the most important asset classes for institutional investors. Given its long term nature, mega trends such as growing and aging populations, urbanization, digitalization, increasing wealth and climate change are increasingly more important factors when making investment decisions.
Fast moving international markets
Given its high capital intensity, minor changes in economic growth, unemployment, interest rates, political situations and tax rates have a direct impact. They have a significant influence on rental income, costs and as such on profitability and valuation of real estate. We work for leading management teams and investors and by being ahead of the game spotting opportunities in market, cities or countries we make the difference.
