Industrial and Logistics Property Sector Sees Sustained Investor Interest

Despite generally subdued levels of investment activity in the European real estate market over the past year and a half, there is still evidence of interest in the industrial and logistics sector according to new research from CB Richard Ellis.

The logistics sector continues to offer a relatively high and stable income, with overall performance less dependent on the more variable elements of growth assumptions, making the sector increasingly attractive to investors seeking defensive assets.
CBRE has seen quite a few funds repositioning themselves to include logistics in recent times. Despite the fact that like in all sectors, investment volumes have been down, the decline has been relatively shallower and there is an ongoing trend towards logistics growing its share of overall European investment market, from 7 pct to 10 pct during 2008.
