  • Persistent strong investor demand, with 63% wants to be net buyers.
  • Strong boost for the office occupiers’ market in Denmark, Finland and Norway, but Sweden show signs of a matured cycle.
  • Rising scepticism around retail rents as e-commerce challenges bricks-and-mortar retail.
  • Industrial and logistics sector continues to strengthen its run.
  • Stable yield expectations for the Nordic region, but investors recognise significant sector and country differences.
  • But, possibly overly optimistic view on own portfolios might generate a gap between buyers and sellers and hinder liquidity.
