Finding the value hotspots in Europe

With the strong economic recovery in continental Europe, investor interest has followed suit and demand has been strong for core assets in well-connected locations. Value has therefore, on the whole, become harder to find in Europe. However, there are still opportunities to find long-term value in select markets, especially in CBD and edge of CBD office markets where rental growth is strengthening, based on current pricing, says David Jackson, Fund Manager, at M&G Real Estate.

Investor confidence in continental European real estate makes perfect sense when taking into account the strong macro backdrop, with attractive GDP growth and falling unemployment. Throughout 2017, economic growth in the Eurozone consistently beat expectations. Following growth of 0.7% in Q3 and 0.6% in Q4, Eurozone GDP reached 2.5% in 2017 overall, well above the ECB’s forecast of 1.7% at the start of the year. This marks the fastest pace of growth since 2007. The European Commission’s sentiment indicator also reached 116 in 2017, the strongest result since 2000 when the Euro was first introduced.
