This forecast is made after the investment market in 2017 totaled €2,100 million, corresponding to more than 60 operations, with the foreign capital being the leader and the main driver of the activity, representing 67% of the total invested.
The office sector captured the largest share of real estate investment, at a new historical maximum, receiving 38% of the invested capital, €770 million, while the retail sector raised €740 million.
The consultant believes that this year the strong activity will continue to be felt, with the first months of the year confirming it: from January to February, have already been invested €800 million, corresponding almost entirely to retail business, such as the acquisition of Immochan's portfolio of shopping centers or the acquisition of Dolce Vita Tejo by AXA Real Estate. This should be the sector that will attract more investment during the course of this year. Mixed-use portfolios and hotels will also record high interest.
