A market that requires specialist knowledge

Kempen offers independent research which is thought-provoking (e.g. our annual European Property Outlook), fundamental (e.g. our Real Time comparison reports on European retail, German residential, London or UK large caps) and thematic (e.g. our Real Time reports post Brexit and on Swedish tax changes). With in-depth analyses of 58 listed companies spread over twelve countries results in by far the widest coverage in Europe.

Anticipating trends

Over the past decade we have been able to identify outperformance for several regions, asset classes and other trend related issues (e.g. companies restructuring) that have resulted in appealing risk-adjusted returns. Our approach is a combination of top-down views combined with a bottom-up approach that is very much fed by local intel.
