We are delighted to bring you the latest edition of the CEE Investment Scene for H1 2022 with some outlook for the remainder of the year.
Despite a growing number of challenges that are developing, both in the CEE region and Globally, during the first half of 2022, CEE investment volumes were up 8.5% YoY at ca. €5.3 billion. While Q1 recorded quite strong activity, it was to slow down again in Q2, and is in line with results recorded across much of Europe. For the full year, Colliers has revised its year-end volumes estimate for CEE to reach between EUR 9.0 and 10.0 billion for 2022.
Despite the events and developments in the first half of the year, investors still view the CEE investment market as an attractive destination for capital, subject to the availability of investment product. In H1 2022, CEE domestic capital has been the most active with a 40% share of total volumes. In particular, Czech and Hungarian capital continue their drive with 20% and 11% of the total regional volume, respectively. This was followed by North American (25%) and European capital (21%). South African capital has also been more active in recent months, while Asian capital, has been fairly quiet so far this year.
