LOW TRANSACTION VOLUME, BUT GOOD RESULT
With a transaction volume of around €6.3 billion in the first three quarters, the retail investment market achieved a weaker overall result and missed both the result from the comparable period of the previous year (-34%) and the long-term average (-21%) by a considerable margin. However, looking only at the third quarter, the picture is different: with a transaction volume of €3.5 billion, the retail investment market posted its best quarterly result since the outbreak of the Corona pandemic. The result in the third quarter was once again fuelled by investments in the specialist and food segment. With a portfolio of former REAL stores as well as the Touchdown and Power Bowl portfolios, several portfolio sales contributed to a high transaction volume in the months between July and September. In total, however, portfolios (€2.8 billion) just like single investments (€3.5 billion) fell short of their ten-year averages by 22% and 20% respectively.
