Real Estate

With a pandemic bringing the global economy to a standstill, it would be an understatement to say that 2020 has been a tough year. Marked by nationwide lockdowns, the second quarter of the year triggered rising unemployment levels and a global recession. Nevertheless, according to industry experts, real estate is still seen as an asset class that can generate acceptable returns during this period of huge uncertainty. This is not true for all types of commercial real estate though. While industrial and logistics properties enjoy sound investment and development prospects, retail and hotel have been stagnating.

Meanwhile, governments and central banks worldwide have responded with tax reliefs and record-low residential mortgage rates. Naturally, the increase in demand for housing has led to an upward trend in house prices, but also concerns about housing affordability.
