Interview with Barbara A. Knoflach 

European opportunities in 2016 ?

Barbara A. Knoflach :

Europe continues to be extremely active as real estate still offers relatively attractive income returns and a growing possibility of rental growth. Asia is slowing and has its own issues to solve. The US market is growing nicely but is more advanced in the cycle than Europe.

For Europe, the timing is therefore perfect and 2016 will be a strong investment year. Interest rates remain low, growth is robust and real estate fundamentals are good,

leading to strong demand for good quality properties. UK, Germany and France are the core European markets, with promise in Italy and in the Netherlands. Questions remain for Eastern Europe.

What are investors’ expectations ?

B. A. K. :

Competition for low risk investments is intense among investors, while regulations force them to manage investments tightly. Yield expectations in the core segment are low.

Therefore, investors are increasingly evaluating value-add investments. Geographical diversification is another big trend as institutional investors are usually mostly invested in their home market.

What is your strategy for 2016 ?

B. A. K. :

Investment management boomed in 2015 with €22bn in assets under management and a transaction volume of €2.7bn. The plan for 2016 is to expand our pan-European offering. BNP Paribas Real Estate has one of the best networks in Europe, allowing us to deliver best-in-class results throughout the value creation chain.
