Over 360 investors took part in the CBRE 2013 online survey of European Investor Intentions, drawn from across the property investment community. The survey was designed to provide high level insights into investor sentiment and preferences with respect to regions, countries, cities, sectors and asset types and the impact of key influences on investor attitudes and activity. Comparisons with the 2012 survey results highlight some significant shifts in investor sentiment and preferences which are likely to impact on activity in the coming year. The economic environment clearly remains challenging for investors but the survey revealed a more positive tone in investor intentions for 2013 in terms of expected levels of purchasing activity and the appetite for a range of opportunities beyond prime property.
