LATEST REPORTS IN EMEA REGION Supply Chain Disruptors The growth of e-commerce, technology change and other cyclical and structural factors, like the crisis of the shipping industry, are reshaping supply chains and have major implications for industrial property portfolios/markets according to a new research from Colliers International. In the balance Colliers' latest report reveals that the correlation between growth in office-based jobs and office investment turnover during the last economic and investment cycle is absolutely clear. In order to maintain this positive outlook, the priority for major European cities has to be focused on generating more high-quality, value-added office-based jobs to drive occupier and investment demand for assets. The CEE Investment Outlook Compass 2017 CEE started the year strong with EUR 2.3bn invested in its real estate markets in Q1 2017. This represents a 41% growth compared with Q1 2016. Inward investment from UK predicted to remain at around 7 – 9 % of total investment into the CEE real estate sector. Western Europe and US capital flows expected to be somewhat similar in size to the EUR 4.9bn level reached in 2016. Brexit could have a positive effect on investment volumes in the CEE in the longer term. The Changing of the Guard Where will the “next South Africa for CEE be”? How strong are domestic and CEE cross-border flows presently? These are two questions amongst others that we ponder in our new Investment Outlook report. The traditional and expected sources of investment (USA/UK/Europe/G10) are still there but the dynamic growth is coming from Asia , South Africa and from within CEE itself.
