In 2016, real estate investment in Europe fell by 9% by comparison with 2015 to €230 billion, but the listed real estate companies in our sample nevertheless achieved excellent financial performances.
For the 7th edition of this study, we have analysed the financial reporting of a sample of listed European real estate companies in this dynamic environment.

Further, given the downward pressure on the capitalisation rate, asset values have appreciated by 5%. However, against an uncertain political and economic background, this positive development has not been reflected in stock market prices.
