London offers property lenders the best returns among the largest markets in Europe, according to CBRE’s latest European Debt Map.
Returns for senior lending are higher in London (2.65%) than in other major markets such as Berlin (1.42%) or Paris (1.52%).
Central and Eastern Europe have the highest returns overall in Europe, led by Bucharest and Warsaw at around 5%, due to the relative illiquidity of those markets.
Among the major markets in Western Europe, the UK has higher margins and higher total cost of debt than Germany and France.
