The second quarter of 2014 featured the close of multiple pending retail operations; pushing total investment volume up to over €1.8 Bn.
While the retail sector has begun to move swiftly, other sectors, particularly the office one remains more challenging for investors. While the current refrain heard from many investors references the lack of product on the market, in many cases the main issue is the amount of capital currently focussing on a very specific investment profile.
The deals that closed during Q2 2014 were generally of a large lot size, with multiple deals closing about €100M and few deals closing below €50M.
