Q1 2021 saw momentum continue in the Industrial & Logistics and Living sectors however, there was a pause to large scale office transactions which led to many countries seeing investment volumes half in comparison to Q1 2020. Investment into direct European Real Estate reached €51bn, a 35% fall on Q1 2020. However, it is worth noting that Q1 2020 was the second highest Q1 figure posted in the last 10 years, and the figure masks a range in performance across countries.
