Bespoke support for investment transactions across Europe

Europe is an attractive region for commercial real estate investment. One of the strengths of the European commercial real estate market has been the amount of capital moving in between markets and flowing into Europe. The amount of cross-border investments has been growing for the last 10 years to reach a share of nearly half the investment volume in Europe today (source: BNP Paribas Real Estate).

A structure adapted to all sources and origins of capital

Amongst foreign investors, European investors remain the most represented source of cross-border investment (45% on average over the past ten years). Capital flows coming from the Americas are another solid source for the European investment market (26%). However, new investors are emerging across the European real estate market. Indeed, Asian investors have shown a growing interest in Europe and capital flows from Asia (8%) increased by almost fivefold over the last 10 years, while Middle East investors are key players with a 6% share. The International Investment Group is set up to accompany investors from these regions in their real estate strategies across Europe.
