European real estate obsolescence risk lowest for the Nordics

Ipad Frame - Europe-Real-estate-obsolescence-risk-lowest-for-the-Nordics

Our new index of European real estate obsolescence finds that the Nordic countries have the lowest risk of obsolescence and are best placed for the climate transition.

What you will learn:

  • We believe that locations with a lower obsolescence risk will benefit from more-defensive future returns over the medium to longer-term, as investors re-weight portfolios to align with net-zero commitments.
  • Less risky locations will benefit from the lower cost of capital.
  • Countries that are higher up the obsolescence risk scale will present opportunities for value-add and opportunistic strategies to green the existing stock.
