Investors looking to property

September 2, 2013

Investors are looking to logistics property to deliver increased returns from higher rents, as the expansion of multi-channel retailing drives growth in the market. The suggestion comes from Henderson Global Investors in a report entitled: The impact of technology on real estate: Implications for retail and logistics. It points out that European retailers are likely to need as much as 25 million sq m of additional logistics space in the coming five years, significantly surpassing previous requirements. Demand in emerging markets, where the supply chain network is less established, could be greater still.
