Property in a zero interest rate world
Are we heading towards a new norm?
A great deal has been written about corporate real-estate in terms of its ability to resist a hypothetical rise in interest rates. However, the scenario of “permanently low interest rates” has not been considered quite so much. But this is a situation which is becoming increasingly realistic for analysts, what would be the consequences for the property markets and which investment strategies would be best suited?
Daniel White, Research and Strategy Director, has considered this in a special notice.
With a university education in local economic development, Daniel While began his career as business establishment consultant to local authorities. In 2006, he joined the Institut de l’Epargne immobilière et Foncière as analyst, and specialised in the world of unlisted real estate funds (SCPIs and OPCIs for France).
He is co-author of the book Les OPCI published by Delmas (September 2008). He joined Primonial REIM in 2017, where he held the position of Development Director, then Research & Strategy Director from 2019.
Henry-Aurélien Natter joined Primonial REIM as Research Manager in January 2018. He has the mission of developing the analyses of the Research & Strategy Department on the real estate markets, the economy and capital in France and in Europe.
Henry-Aurélien Natter began his career at Les Echos Etudes (formerly Eurostaf), then at C&W (formerly DTZ), and lastly at BNP PRE, where he acquired solid and varied experience in real estate research, strategy and finance. He is qualified with an AES degree in Business Management, a Masters Decree in management and SME management, and an International Master in commerce and marketing.
