Thanks to a dynamic international environment fuelled by a persistently attractive rate spread, a favourable yield/risk ratio and an abundance of capital, the French commercial real estate investment market was highly competitive on the European level. The market's solid fundamentals (depth, transparency, liquidity) were amplified by a clearly improved economic - and therefore leasing - context. This is a result of the return of more solid growth with its positive net absoption (though somewhat dampened by the recent mass demonstrations), as well as a generalised corporate focus on real estte reorganisation, across all sectors.
