Investor interest in fixed-income hotel real estate is at unprecedented levels. Fund managers increasingly see leased hotel assets as an attractive portfolio option amid the current low interest rate environment.
The scale of investor appetite was underlined by CBRE Hotels' inaugural Fixed-Income Breakfast, where attendees representing leading UK and European investor groups debated the key challenges and opportunities within the European hotel sector.
Those taking part were drawn from major institutions as well as the newer contenders in the hotel investment space. They were joined by sector specialists from CBRE, plus representatives from the occupier side and expert commentators from the advisory/professional services arena. This report brings together highlights from their discussions.
