The world around us continues to change at a rapid pace, and the real estate sector is no exception. In this episode of Real Catch Up, Central London Investment Senior Director, Larry Young speaks to us about how opportunities in the real estate investment market have changed and the trends and opportunities available to investors.
A growing desire for sustainable investment products is changing market fundamentals as the importance of ESG (Environmental Social Governance) and sustainable development take up a bigger and bigger place in real estate portfolios.
This combined with the fact that the assets investors are interested in is changing, driven by a diversification of investment portfolios and transportation projects in major cities such as the Grand Paris Express in Paris and Crossrail in London, means that the cities that we live in have been impacted. With investment being channelled into a variety of
asset classes such as healthcare and logistics, the way in which cities are built and
interacted with is shifting in line with investor interest.
With investors from across the world interested in the investment opportunities in Europe, cities are only going to continue to evolve, affected by challenges related to ESG, renewable energy and the environment.
