CEE Investment Scene | Q1-Q3 2020

Despite COVID-19 impacts on markets, flow volumes remain relatively healthy for the first 3 quarters of 2020 at ca. €8.0 billion. Colliers estimate 2020 yearend volumes to reach €10.0 to €12.0 billion. Regional volumes are down 12% compared to the same period of 2019. Romania is having a great year and a few large portfolios have supported overall regional volumes.

Since Q2 we have recorded very little movement in prime yields, primarily due to the lack of transactional evidence to support further shifts. Our view remains that while some shifts are inevitable, core, well performing assets should hold up well, with more pressure on secondary product. Due to the shift in interest of investors to logistics we can also expect to see prices react accordingly.

Luke Dawson

Managing Director Cross Border Capital Markets

London - West End

I started with Colliers in 2003 working as Director of Corporate Development with a focus on mergers and acquistions across the globe.  After leading the acquisitions of the Colliers businesses in Russia, Ukraine, and South East Europe, I relocated to the Czech Republic in 2007 to take on the role of Head of Operations for Eastern Europe.  I was responsible for the day-to-day oversight, integration and coordination of the 13 countries.  In 2012 I accepted the position of Regional Managing Director for South East Europe.  In this position I was responsible for business development, key accounts, investment sales and overall business accountability.

In 2014 I left Colliers to run one of the largest private family offices in the middle east.  This involved leading all asset management, acquisitions and dispositions across the globe and the overall leadership of the organization. 

In early 2017 I returned to Colliers in my current role.  My focus is on driving our investment sales business across Central Europe.  This means strategically managing regional investment relationships, connecting opportunities and guiding the overall strategy of the service line.  I also have leadership responsibility for the Central Europe businesses as a whole and work closely with the local leaders to grow our businesses.
