The search for yield is having a significant impact on European commercial real estate (CRE) investment according to CBRE’s 2015 Investor Intention’s Survey. As prime yields continue to decline across core markets in Western Europe, CRE investors are diversifying their investment strategies and moving up the risk curve. This diversification included new markets and also new ‘alternative sectors’ - it was said at CBRE Hungary’s 9th Property Investment briefing.
Asian investors deployed a total of US$40 billion into international commercial real estate in 2014, a rise of 23% year on year (2013: US$32.5 billion), according to the latest research from global real estate advisor CBRE.
