SECOND-BEST RESULT THANKS TO YEAR-END RALLY
The momentum seen in previous quarters picked up once again significantly at the end of the year. With a transaction volume of around €24.7 billion, the second-best final quarter of all time was recorded. At €64.1 billion, the result for the year as a whole was also exceptionally good, ranking second in the all-time best list. This top result is particularly remarkable when one considers that there were a whole series of disruptive factors. These include the supply bottlenecks for primary products, the sharp rise in inflation and, not least, the recovery in the number of corona cases. In particular, the positive development of various business sectors, above all in the logistics sector, where new sales records were set, but also the office markets, which saw a rise in take-up by around a quarter, have given investors cause for optimism. And they see this as confirmation of their positive basic attitude.
