Performance of European real estate assets peaks in 2021

The INREV Pan-European annual Asset Level Index recorded a total return of 13.15% in 2021.

  • The latest result is a record high since the inception of the Index and is significantly above its 3-year (8.19%) and 5-year (8.87%) annualised total returns. Capital growth of 9.29% drove the performance while income return declined slightly by 17bps to 3.56%.
  • At 16.33%, UK assets delivered the strongest annual performance amongst the four main geographies. The latest results were also strong across the board, with Germany, the Netherlands and France delivering 2021 total returns of 13.70%, 12.94% and 12.01%, respectively.
  • With 26.63% total return, logistics/industrial assets maintain its position as the top-performing sector in 2021, more than doubling the 10.99% performance reported in 2020. The sector is also displaying the highest capital growth (21.74%) since the inception of the Index.
