Europe's non-core markets experience most significant rise in retail investment

10 January 2017

International real estate advisor Savills has reported that investors into Europe’s retail sector are shifting their interest to some of the continent’s non-core markets.   Investment into Europe’s retail sector during Q1-Q3 2016 reached EUR 33.3bn across the 15 markets that Savills covers, down 28% from the 2015 record volume. However, despite the overall drop of total turnover in the two largest markets of the UK (-18%) and Germany (-46%) during this time period, Europe’s non-core markets in contrast have experienced a significant rise in retail investment. These include: Ireland (223% to €1.46bn); Poland (126% to €1.4bn) and Italy (119% to €1.8bn).
