Logistics assets increasingly popular with investors – report

Warehouse and industrial properties in Poland are attracting more and more investor interest with the transaction volume in the sector having seen an average annual growth of about 20% over the last three years, according to the latest report by Savills. In the first half of 2018, approximately €337.8 million was transacted in the warehouse and industrial real estate market in the country, which is the best H1 result in the market’s history, the study said. The most active buyers in the sector include German funds such as DEKA and GLL, as well as American investors such as Invesco, Hines, Hillwood and CBRE GI. Since 2015, also a number of major Asian investors – including China’s CIC, Malaysia’s EPF and Singapore’s GIC – have entered the market. In July, South Africa’s Redefine – which has been an active buyer of retail and office assets – made its first acquisition in the Polish logistics property market. The company bought nine assets from Panattoni Europe for a total of around €200 million.
