Record high retail real estate investment volume

The retail real estate investment volume of 2015 reached a record high of € 2.8 billion, a rise of 87% y-o-y. CBRE's Retail MarketView shows that this can be explained by an increasing number of single asset deals and a hand full of exceptional large portfolio deals. The record volume also clearly indicates that the retail market lags behind on the economic cycle by one or two years. A number of Dutch retailers - mostly lacking a clear and distinctive proposition - had to file for bankruptcy at the end of last year.
