CM snapshot 2022 Q1  hero

The first quarter of 2022 was dealt a devastating shock by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine - despite this, market resilience and historically high levels of dry powder continued to support investor interest in commercial real estate (CRE) in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Our Q1 2022 Capital Markets Snapshot indicates that in Q1 investor interest in commercial real estate continued to recover from the pandemic, with many investors seeing property as a hedge against rising prices. Provisional figures for the first quarter suggest a 5% rise in volumes from the same quarter of 2021, with rolling 12-month volumes up by 7%.

Luke Dawson

Managing Director Cross Border Capital Markets

London - West End

As of 2021, I took on the leadership of our EMEA Cross Border Capital Markets team, based in London.    We look to support global investors with accessing opportunities across the region as well as leveraging our local relationships into the wider region.  It is a client-led approach  across asset classes and countries formulated on the idea of matching our structure to how investors view the markets.  We look to build relationships at the decision maker level by meeting capital in their home countries on a regular basis and really understanding their long-term objectives.

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 several Colliers businesses across Europe, I relocated to Europe in 2007 and took on several roles across the business in both regional management and Capital Markets capacities. During this period I was responsible for  business development, key accounts, investment sales and overall business accountability across our Central and Eastern European businesses.

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 to take on the regional management and Capital Markets leadership across Central Europe.  My focus was on driving our investment sales business across Central Europe as well as strategic leadership of the overall  Central Europe business.
