- With a transaction volume of almost EUR 5.7 bn, January 2020 was the strongest January for investment on record. The rolling twelve-month transaction volume stands at approx. EUR 90.8bn, which is around 2% higher than December’s figure.
- The high transaction volume in January is a consequence of the fact that some larger transactions that should have been completed last year rolled over into the first few days of this year. Nevertheless, we are witnessing unusually high levels of transaction activity for this time of year which, in our opinion, confirms that another very high transaction volume can be expected in 2020.
- The ten largest transactions in January were dominated by the office sector (7 deals), ahead of mixed-use (2 deals) and residential property (1 deal). Another likely indicator for the remainder of the year is the fact that all transactions exceeded EUR 100m.
