Investment market Frankfurt

Investmentmarkt Frankfurt


The Frankfurt investment market has achieved a good half-year result and, with a transaction volume of almost €2.1 billion, has already exceeded the €2 billion threshold in the first six months. Although this means that transaction volume is 28% lower than in the same period of the previous year, this cannot be used as a meaningful benchmark due to the disproportionately large portfolio deals, e.g. the TLG takeover and other M&A transactions from which Frankfurt had benefited strongly. In the first half of 2020, the share of portfolios investments was 45%, whereas it is currently only 7%. The situation is completely different if we look only at individual sales. Here, the previous year's figure of just under €1.95 billion was surpassed by 20.5% and the long-term average was also slightly exceeded. When assessing the result, it should also be borne in mind that Frankfurt, as Germany's most international location, was more severely affected by the travel restrictions than other cities, as due diligence processes were made considerably more difficult for foreign buyers. In a nationwide comparison, the banking metropolis ranks third behind Berlin and Munich in terms of the transaction volume achieved.
