Europe’s Deal Volume Outstrips US Activity in Q2

By on July 31st, 2020

Commercial real estate activity in Europe outstripped that of the U.S. in the second quarter of 2020 even as deal volume across the continent tumbled by 32% compared to the same period last year.

Trading of single asset deals plunged in Europe as the Covid-19 lockdown nixed dealmaking, but a pair of megadeals in Germany and the U.K. added more than €10 billion ($12 billion) to the aggregate level, the latest edition of Europe Capital Trends shows. Meanwhile, cross-border spending in Europe dropped to the lowest level since 2013.
