CM snapshot Q2  hero image
After a slow first quarter, there has been a resurgence of interest in property markets in the second quarter amid growing investor confidence in the region’s recovery prospects. Key markets saw a return of the big-ticket Capital Markets office transactions absent in Q1, while momentum in the industrial and logistics sectors continued to build in the expectation that the online delivery demand created by lockdowns is here to stay. Despite the leisure sector remaining relatively subdued, investor interest in hotels is also visibly picking up in places, notably in tourism hotspots such as Italy and Spain.
