Investor Intentions Survey 2016

Download the full report here

Our 2016 commercial real estate investor intentions survey elicited over 1,250 responses globally with over a third coming from EMEA. Two themes stand out this year: a significantly increased interest in commercial real estate across the CEE markets, and investors’ attitude to risk. However, there was much less agreement amongst the respondents as to what constitutes the most attractive market and the best real estate investment strategy. As differences in opinion are what makes a market, we believe 2016 will be an interesting time in real estate. View our infographics below for all the highlights.

Key Findings: Alternative assets remain very attractive to commercial real estate investors

Key Findings: London retains the top spot as commercial real estate investors’ preferred city across EMEA

Key Findings: Germany becomes the most popular country in EMEA for commercial real estate investment

Key Findings: Commercial real estate investors will continue to be active across EMEA in 2016

Key Findings: Real estate investors’ appetite for residential increases across EMEA

The unprecedented scale of this portfolio allowed us to demonstrate the international reach and expertise of the CBRE network, in a deal representing the largest ever sale of logistics assets in the region.

As a result of this position we were able to implement a dedicated global sales team to ensure we had full access to attract interest from the most qualified buyers from across the world. In doing so, we effectively overcame the challenge of helping the client see the advantage – as well as to understand the logistics – of investing in the Nordics.

CBRE’s leadership in the market meant we were able to draw a significant weight of new capital into the bidding process. It was a deal that highlighted the collaborative nature of CBRE; utilising the insight and knowledge of our local teams, while leveraging the experience of our colleagues in London, Asia Pacific and the Americas.

Occupying one of the most iconic office buildings in Mayfair, AB demanded a world class service to ensure visitors were impressed by not only the property, but by their experience.

CBRE’s breadth of services meant we were well placed to meet this demand. From facilities management through to catering and hospitality, we effectively created a one team culture which put the AB brand at the heart if our strategy.

Since being awarded the contract in 2013, CBRE has continuously strived to upskill its staff and adapt its service to deliver better results – be it through the implementation of energy benchmarking tools, introducing a 24/7 helpdesk, or by taking ownership of quality, health, safety and environment.

“CBRE successfully mobilised the contract back in 2013 ensuring a seamless transition of employees and immediately creating a positive impact on overall service delivery. Since this, CBRE has continued to focus on service excellence by developing its team and growing its relationship with AB.”
