Raining data: An analytical, non-alarmist approach to the impact of extreme flooding events on real estate assets

The resilience of the built environment to sustain and thrive through the long term will increasingly depend on its vulnerability to key risks, such as the long-term consequences of climate change, the increased occurrence of extreme weather events, and natural disasters. The impact of these extreme events is wide-ranging not only on the built environment, but also on the social and physical infrastructure that supports human activity.


Food for thought: What’s on investors’ minds these days?

Each year, we hold two Editorial Advisory Board meetings in the Americas region, one in the European region, and one in the Asia Pacific region. The objective, always, is to create a one-to-one relationship between the publication sponsors in attendance (mostly investment managers) and the representatives from our targeted readership of investors and their consultants. (In some cases, we actually exceeded that ratio, with more capital allocator types in attendance than capital seekers.)


Comfort in the built environment: By examining what makes buildings comfortable for occupants, landlords can help enhance efficiency and morale in work environments

Creating buildings that prioritise comfort is widely recognised as a way to make spaces that are not only functional but also pleasant to be in and around. This is especially important as around half of most people’s daily working hours are spent in buildings, either an office, warehouse or in a retail setting. Multiply those hours over a life- time, and it is easy to see how building for wellbeing and comfort is important.


Looking into the future: Taking a long-term view on real estate yields

During the past six months, UK and Euro- pean real estate yields have increased dramatically. UK logistics market prime regional yields increased from 3.25 percent in June 2022 to 5 percent at the end of the year; during the same period, prime office yields in Paris increased from 2.6 percent to 3.4 percent.
