On the other hand, retail and hospitality continued to be the most affected asset classes, yet adding up to 15% of the total amount invested. Still to be highlighted the dynamism of supermarkets and hypermarkets as an investment product.
Throughout the quarter, prime yields remained stable compared to the end of last year, albeit at historic lows in the office segment (4%), high street retail (4.5%) and logistics (5.75%) .
Liquidity remains high in the market, and investors continue to show an appetite for the Portuguese market. There is a "considerable number" of mandates, and even in the context of more complex transactions, due to the current conjuncture, predictions that 2021 will be quite positive with regard to the volume of investment.
