Economic growth is bringing optimism back to Europe. This is particularly apparent in France.
Our series of European Outlook 2018 events comes to Paris - giving you an overview of the key market and investment trends for both Europe and France in 2018. Paris has just beaten London, Frankfurt and Berlin to bag the largest office deal of the year. The €1.8 bn sale of the Coeur Défense office complex in the French capital, sold by US private equity company Lone Star and bought by French group Amundi, could be a harbinger of things to come. Office take-up has increased, vacancy rates have been going down and rents are rising. To what extent will Paris benefit from Brexit? What about other sectors like residential, set to benefit from big infrastructure projects like Grand Paris and the prospect of the Olympic Games in 2024? More widely, Emmanuel Macron's election as president has brought political renewal and the promise of reforms which will bring change to the real estate sector as well. What is likely to happen? Has positive sentiment put France firmly back on the map for investors? How does this compare with Germany and the UK? Will investment volumes increase for France? With secondary markets a big topic across Europe, will investors looking for more opportunities and better yields look beyond Paris? What are the prospects for France's regional cities? With GDP growth coming through across Europe, wll optimism about future prospects in France and Europe be sustained in 2018?
