Commercial Real Estate is a major investment Asset Class, represents a very substantial portion of corporate assets and provides collateral and credit support for a huge volume of bank and Capital Markets financings, ranging from lending to the SME sector to Commercial Mortgage Backed Securitisations. Moreover the Real Estate markets are extending from traditional investment categories such as offices and retail to now include increased interest in areas such as distribution centres, hotels and Private Residential Rental properties and student accommodation.
Commercial Real Estate values are very sensitive to the underlying economic fundamentals as well as the financial markets. With interest rates in the US, UK and the Eurozone starting to rise, there are concerns that this will adversely impact Commercial Real Estate values. Additionally Commercial Real Estate values and performance are also influenced by specific factors such as the quality of the Real Estate, lease terms, tenant risk, market sector and geographic focus making it essential to understand the specifics of each Commercial Real Estate Asset.
