London, Amsterdam and Zurich lead Swiss Life Asset Managers’ European Thematic City Index for 2023

by Andrea Zander

London defends the top spot of the Swiss Life Asset Managers European Thematic Cities Index in 2023, closely followed by Amsterdam and Zurich. The proprietary index measures European cities against five core city themes that are aligned with major trends shaping a city's real estate market.

The top-ranked city in the European Thematic Cities Index for 2023 is London, which has maintained its pole position for the third consecutive year, taking the lead in the Dynamism, Networks and Cosmopolitanism themes.

In second place ranks Amsterdam. It has climbed two ranks and scores very strongly in the areas of Healthiness and Networks.

Zurich is in third place. The Swiss city proves to be well connected, dynamic and also scores highly in Networks.

Brussels and Cambridge are new entries in the top 10, at No. 6 and No. 10, respectively, from No. 11 and No. 16, previously. Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo, Basel and Paris defend their place among the top 10.

"Reversals of pandemic-related effects still drive some of the ranking changes, but overall the 2023 TCI confirms many of the underlying strengths and weaknesses of previous years TCIs, with eight cities staying in the top 10 since the first release in 2021.” Comments Francesca Boucard, head, real estate research and strategy, at Swiss Life Asset Managers.
