Colliers International talks capital flows outlook for CEE – Studivest comments

Earlier this month at MIPIM in Cannes, Colliers International’s research specialist Mark Robinson discussed capital flow outlook for the CEE region.  In this summary, Studivest includes the key elements of the briefing along with its own views on what this could mean for Student Housing in the region.

Pointing to record inflows in 2017 (exceeding pre-crisis 2007), Mr Robinson highlighted Poland’s quieter H1, but significantly increased activity in H2 2017 with total inward investment at EUR5.1bn for the year.

Other countries in the region also saw growing investment particularly in the Hotel and Retail sectors – Czech Republic and Hungary were still somewhat behind Poland at EUR3.72bn and EUR1.82bn respectively.

At Studivest, we are keen to look at the historical backdrop and future prospects for Real Estate investment into the region as a way of providing some context to the prospects for the region’s nascent Student Housing sector.

CEE governments of all political persuasions, and the universities themselves, are earnestly vying for the dramatically-increasing, globally-mobile student cohorts who will be seeking modern and affordable higher education and accompanying housing so now could really be the time to begin investing in Student Housing in the region.
