Real estate in Central and Eastern Europe will remain high on cross-border investors' shopping lists in 2012, according to CBRE's Investors Intentions report.
Last year CEE, including Russia, attracted EUR 10.2 bn of property investment, double the total for the previous year. Even excluding Russia, CEE saw a doubling of transaction volumes from EUR 2.9 bn in 2010 to EUR 6.1 bn in 2011.
The region saw huge investment inflows during the boom years, but transactions came to a virtual standstill when the financial crisis erupted.
The return of cross-border investment to CEE begs the question whether the region is set for a new gold rush. This is the main question to be discussed at PropertyEU's CEE Investment Briefing, which is being hosted at CBRE's office in London on 28 March.
Over 90 real estate professionals - including investors, bankers and advisers - are attending the event.
The keynote presentation is being given by Jos Tromp, head of CEE Research and Consulting at CBRE. His presentation will be followed by a panel discussion, a question & answer session and networking.
The panelists are Martin Erbe, head of Northern and Central Europe at financier Helaba; Yann Guen, vice president and board member at Mayland Real Estate and Andreas Ridder, Central and Eastern Europe, CBRE.
PropertyEU Investment Briefings are focused investment seminars dedicated to a specific region or asset class. Each Investment Briefing has a panel of leading figures discussing the key market developments, valuations, risks, opportunities, sectors and regions.
