Despite the difficult geopolitical environment in 2016, real estate markets have generally held up well. All our business lines are progressing as a whole. In 2017 we are to start implementing our 2020 development plan that structures and crystallises our ambitions for each of our business lines and uses digital to develop new service offers. With respect to our central functions, early-2017 has seen the creation of two new departments: an Innovation department and a Data department. Lastly, our commitment to CSR, which has become increasingly important in our clients’ investment choices, also features among our priorities for 2017 and the coming years” comments Thierry Laroue-Pont, Chief Executive Officer of BNP Paribas Real Estate.

“Our 2017 ambitions for our business lines are clear. We notably expect growth in Investment Management, mainly due to a robust level of activity in France and Germany, as well as the forthcoming launch of the NEIF 3 fund. Recent pan-European mandates for Property Management, such as that signed with Logicor for over 1 million m², should contribute to the growth that we expect for this business line. We also have major ambitions for our Advisory businesses for which we expect to at least match 2016 revenue. In Office Property Development, we plan to launch 10 or so schemes in France and Continental Europe. Our development strategy on this business line is based partly on researching substantial mixed schemes involving commercial/residential/hotel real estate in Ile-de-France and the regions and partly on our expansion in Europe. Lastly, we plan to start 2,300 homes in Residential” concludes Thierry Laroue-Pont, Chief Executive Officer of BNP Paribas Real Estate.
