Topic of the week: The commercial real estate crisis in the Eurozone and financial risk

  • The price of commercial real estate in the Eurozone has dropped significantly due to the sharp increase in interest rates;
  • Structural factors are also at play with the teleworking, online commerce, and the demand for buildings with better energy efficiency;
  • The outlook, while slightly improving, remains degraded;
  • For the ECB, commercial real estate represents one of the most significant risks to financial stability in the Eurozone;
  • Its focus is on real estate investment funds, which represent 40% of the commercial real estate market;
  • In the event of market stress and significant investor redemption requests, open-ended real estate investment funds (80% of the funds) are exposed to a liquidity risk that could pose a systemic risk to the commercial real estate market and impact the financial stability of the Eurozone.
