Dubai, April 6, 2014
JLL has been ranked the number one real estate investment advisory firm in EMEA in 2013, according to recently released independent data from Real Capital Analytics (RCA).
With over €20 billion reported sales in 2013, JLL was ranked top by investment volume across all major sectors: office, retail, industrial and hotels by RCA . JLL also came top in EMEA overall in 2012 and 2011.
As well as leading on the sellside, JLL’s capital markets teams were equally active in acquisitions, joint ventures and financing and overall advised on more than €38 billion of commercial real estate investment transactions in 2013. Acting across 76 local offices in 29 different countries, 70 per cent of JLL’s sales in EMEA involved a non-domestic investor demonstrating JLL’s unrivalled international platform.
Richard Bloxam, head of European Capital Markets at JLL, said: “Our clients tell me they value the high-quality, specialist commercial real estate advice our experienced local, regional and global deal-making teams provide. We will continue to invest in our ability deliver optimal investment advice for our clients who benefit from the combination of best in class capital solutions allied to deep local real estate knowledge. I am confident our wider capital markets offering, including structured equity and debt advice, joint venturing, fund raising and bank advisory, will be in even greater demand this year as investors continue to cross borders and target long-term real estate investment opportunities in EMEA.”
Alan Robertson, Mena CEO at JLL, said: “Our strength and depth in the international capital markets sector has a direct benefit on our ability to advise clients here in the Middle East, and we are pleased to be recognized by RCS in this way.”
JLL was also ranked number one sales advisor by traded volumes in the Asia Pacific region. In 2013, JLL Capital Markets globally traded an average of $380 million every working day. - TradeArabia News Service
