A resurgence of ambitious deal-making in many European markets continues into Q3 2021.

It is increasingly clear that investors view reports of the death of the office as much exaggerated, with milestone office deals concluded this quarter in tier-one cities such as Frankfurt, London and Milan. Core locations in capital cities remain the key investor focus in Europe’s largest economies, particularly in the office sector, but second-tier cities are also attracting attention. 

Logistics assets continue to act as an investment magnet amid the e-commerce revolution and supply chain challenges thrown up by the pandemic. Appetite for hard-hit retail and hospitality properties is still relatively subdued, but bright spots are beginning to emerge, such as Spain’s hotel sector. Both retail and institutional investors continue to demonstrate interest in the residential and particularly the build-to-rent (BTR) sector. Access the full report below.

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.
