By itself, the final quarter of 2015 generated turnover of close to 18 bn € and thus – as expected – set new standards, lifting the aggregate transaction volume to 56.26 bn €. That was 40 % above the 2014 total and exceeded the long-term average by all of around two-thirds.
Office properties with highest share of turnover :
Office properties remain the most important asset class, accounting for 42 % of all the capital deployed. Single deals generated by far the biggest share of this.
Retail investments produced a total of 18.53 bn €, almost twice the prior-year figure. That gave this segment a share of around 33 % of aggregate turnover.
In third place came logistics complexes, which contributed more than 8 % (4.65 bn €) to the total, thus achieving a new record. An even more positive year-on-year development was registered by hotel assets, which were responsible for a slice of just under 8 % (4.39 bn €)
