Investment market situation - Madrid

In Madrid, the investment volume exceeded expectations, reaching a figure close to €2,000m in 2018 (excluding corporate transactions).

Investment market situation - Paris

The investment market in Paris closed 2018 with a record number of transactions, with a total of €23,100m, 19% above the previous year and close to 70% above the long-term average. This figure was made attainable thanks to the volume of the fourth quarter which reached €10,000m. This good result is mainly due to an extraordinary performance in large transactions.
