Europe in the Face of New Challenges

Hybrid is more than work-style, it’s a life-style influencing all aspects of our lives including how, when and where we work, live and shop. However, economic and geopolitical uncertainty and cost pressure has led to a structural challenge between supply and demand. Here is how we perceive
The Real Estate Challenge in Poland in the coming months

The Office Challenge​

Hybrid’s here to stay and occupiers are now focused on investing in quality more than expansion of footprint. However, structural misalignment of supply led to elevated vacancy rates despite high demand.

The Living Challenge​

Purchase of apartments became unaffordable to city dwellers due to depression of mortgage financing, while stock of flats for rent decreased by over 70% in the last 12 months.

The Retail Challenge​

Record low vacancy in warehouses and rent increase in vicinity of large cities as demand continues to be strong. Market struggles to find equilibrium between yields and cost of financing.​

Consolidation of Assets As a Way to Develop Business

The asset consolidation process is a tool used to increase market share and achieve cost-cutting economies of scale, which leads the market to increased competitiveness. Thirty years of freedom has led to an increase in the economic importance of Poland and its fragmented economy in the world. The next step should be to create global brands. Is it the time to merge companies now? What dangers will Poland face on this path, will the gains be greater than the losses?

ESG Ratings Key to Investment Decision Making

The increased importance of environmental, social and corporate governance factors is occurring due to the regulatory framework, but also the changing priorities of banks, institutional and individual investors. Major investors expect active responsibility from the companies they invest in and are more willing to finance companies with good ESG scores. ESG ratings can often help identify companies that meet these requirements.
