2022 Global Investor Outlook reveals
Key findings from the Colliers 2022 Global Investor Outlook include:
- Top three assets of choice include industrial & logistics, which is still unsurprisingly the top asset of choice, with 69% of respondents most likely to invest in this asset in 2022, followed by 57% in offices and 40% in multi-family.
- Europe’s hotel sector is once again on the investor radar thanks to a nascent revival of travel and tourism. But labour shortages have made the return of some hotels difficult. Repurposing hotels remains a trend that is attracting value-add players.
- Investors expect price increases in luxury retail, convenience and food-anchored assets. Traditional shopping centres will likely undergo a period of transition, with the repositioning of department stores a potential prelude to near and mid-term trends.
- Alternative segments attracting the most attention in Europe are life sciences, student housing, affordable housing and data centres. Life science market in Europe lags the U.S. and the data centre market is less mature compared to Asia, which can make it difficult to secure income-producing assets at scale.
- The office locations of choice are London (45%); Paris (30%); Berlin (30%); Munich (30%). Investors are looking at offices as a potential area where they can see returns versus the market.
- The survey shows multifamily assets gaining appeal, particularly among investors in the Nordics and Southern Europe. Traditional homeowners’ markets such as Poland are attracting significant interest as social and economic trends point to more people renting.
