The European Outlook event series comes to Frankfurt to pick up the view from Germany on both the local market and the key trends driving investment across Europe. Germany has become the gateway to Europe for many international investors. Will Europe's haven of stability continue to attract record flows of capital next year or will the economic slowdown, aggravated by the coronavirus crisis, have a negative impact on transactions? How sustainable is the flow of capital?
What are investors looking for now? Issues such as Wellbeing are increasingly influential and, with the increased share of the vote for Green parties across Germany and Europe, will sustainability move higher up the agenda or the pressure grow for a swifter move towards carbon neutral? Mixed-use, co-living, co-working and 'Cradle to Grave' strategies are growing trends in the market - how will these develop in 2021?
In terms of location, Berlin is foreign investors' favourite destination in Germany, while Frankfurt is emerging as the main beneficiary from Brexit. What are the prospects for the rest of the year and into 2020? How do the German cities compare with locations such as London, Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm? What are the key challenges? Regulation and potential rent caps? Availability of product? Too much capital chasing increasingly scarce product? Are price levels too high and putting international investors off? To what extent are investors going up the risk curve? Will the growth of alternative sectors like student housing and micro housing continue? Is this a pan-European opportunity? Which sectors and locations are most likely to provide the best opportunities?
