The European Property Forecast report is a brand new bi-annual publication summarising the Cushman & Wakefield Research house view on the outlook for the European economy and prime property markets.
This year, central banks around the world are expected to taper, end and unwind quantitative easing, with government bond yields anticipated to increase in response. In time, as interest rates rise, the property-to-bond yield gap will narrow, making core and core-plus investment strategies less attractive. However, property yields should be protected in 2018 by the above average yield gap plus investor demand for assets with growth potential, but early cycle movers could include the Paris and Stockholm office markets where pricing for core product looks less compelling.
