Catella Market Tracker: Life Science Real Estate - A New Asset Class on the Rise?

The impact of the Corona virus is having far reaching and dramatic implications in the real estate sector. We are not talking about tactical adjustments in asset allocation, as we are currently seeing in hotels or retail. Entirely new property typologies have come onto investors' radar. You guessed it: A very "new" product called "life science real estate" is popping up in investment committees all over Europe.

    Catella Infographic: Supply Chains, Reshoring & Logistics

    Logistic markets are booming, without a question. But this is only the result of a transformation the world hasn’t seen for a long time. Supply chains are currently reorganising, shortage of products and raw materials continues to accelerate, we haven’t seen in Europe since the end of the Second World War – with effects on both sides, national economies and private households.

      Catella Infographic: The 15-Minute City

      Can you imagine getting from Athens to Leipzig in 15 minutes? Ok, now that was a very curious introduction to our latest infographic. But if you know the fundamental principles of European urban development from an investor or financing point of view, then you will of course be familiar with the Athens Charter from 1933 and, of course, the Leipzig Charter since 2007. To put it more simply: from a car-friendly city to a “fair”, “green” and “productive” city. In addition, there is digitisation as a cross-sectional function - known as a SmartCity.

      Around 4 million square metres of additional logistics space demand is projected for the next 5 years, which is attributed to the booming e-commerce alone. Investors apparently are aware of this development and continue to focus on the dynamic growth trend in the management of information and goods flows. This can also be confirmed when looking at our thematic logistics map for Germany and Austria, which Catella has once again created in cooperation with IndustrialPort.

      One question is on the minds of almost all of us: is the housing market heading a longer-term peak? "After all, it just cannot go on forever like this," is an argument we often hear these days. Nevertheless, with our annual residential map on rents & yields in 81 locations, we rationally address this question and derive trend movements.

      Once again, Catella Research has analysed the commercial residential real estate markets in 61 cities and 19 countries in Europe. It is evident that even the current pandemic phase afflicting Europe has shown little change in its effects on the investor and transaction markets. Demand in the low interest rate environment remains very high.

      No question: the Spanish economy is also suffering from the Corona pandemic. After a 5-year steady upswing, the past year was marked by a strong recession. However, a concerted effort by the government, trade unions and the business community succeeded in setting the economic framework that will lead to robust growth in 2021 and especially 2022.

      Catella Market Tracker Student Housing 2021

      It is interesting how quickly the market perspectives change. Whereas in 2016 many in the real estate market were still convinced that student housing was a locally anchored niche segment, in 2018 we were able to diagnose the establishment of an asset class. The number of transactions increasingly shifted into institutional, often pan-European hands, characterised by a strong increase in the inflow of funds.

      There is hardly a survey among corporates on the market-changing topics of the future in which the topic of ESG is not placed among the TOP 3 - no matter in which country we are in Europe. Working groups that explore standards and market practices are springing up everywhere. Especially the aspect of capital flow into real estate vehicles or assets is of great interest here.

      We cannot look very far into the future with a precision landing, but we can analyse the past and the current situation, interpret it and derive recommendations for action from it. Above all, we can "price in" the current corona situation on the commercial real estate markets - you only have to talk to the corporates, landlords tenants and investors, and a robust picture will emerge of what will happen in the coming quarters. To put it in a nutshell: The German office markets are by no means immune, in view of the economic situation - but so far they have shown themselves to be largely crisis-resistant. Vacancies are rising only moderately; rents and purchase prices are holding steady.

      Catella European Office Market Map 2020/21

      After 12 months of pandemic, the office spaces in the 38 European locations we studied are suffering from below-average intensity of use. We assume that currently between Oulu and Madrid, between Dublin and Warsaw, only about 20% of the offices are regularly visited by employees on a weekly basis. Even more, a complete return to the office after the end of the pandemic seems less and less likely.

      Catella Infographic: DNA of the Commercial Real Estate Assets

      It probably happened in December 2020 - we don't know for sure. We are talking about the trillion mark that the assets held by real estate funds in the euro zone have exceeded. A value that marks a new era. An end to this upward trend is not yet foreseeable, especially since the combination of liquidity and a lack of alternative investment opportunities continues to point the way to pro real estate.

      Active property transaction year despite the pandemicThe transaction volume of the property market was EUR 5.7 billion in 2020. The transaction volume decreased slightly from 2019, which can be at least partially explained by corona crisis and resulting travel and other restrictions, that hampered transactions. Despite the exceptional conditions, foreign investors interest towards Finnish property market remained strong. In 2020, Finland gained property investments worth EUR 3.0 billion by foreign investors, which was circa 53% of all investments.
