During the first months of 2012, we review the results of the past year and so in the Guide to Investment Opportunities in Russia we lay a major emphasis on the closed deals, main trends and events that had the most significant impact upon the market.
In 2011, a record amount of money was invested in the Russian commercial real estate sector even in comparison
with the pre-crisis year 2007 – more than $ 6 billion! In addition, a record property sale took place last year, worth
more than $ 1 billion. For more detail read the comments of market experts on these pages.
We tried to poll the widest possible circle of analysts working with investments in the office, retail, hotel and industrial segments in order to have a more comprehensive picture.
Hopefully these materials will be useful and enable to learn more about the Russian market.
But we did not only assess the past. Leading consultants shared their forecasts for the current year. Most of them
believe that presidential elections in Russia that will be held two days before the MIPIM event will be an important road map into the future. The general situation in the world will also influence the investment landscape. On the whole analysts expect slow development in this year.
In this issue you’ll be able to find out how foreign investors felt in Russia, how the investor’s profile may change in the near future, what the share of foreign capital was in the total volume of transactions, what sectors took the lead, and which ones were of less interest to the investors.
I wish you pleasant reading,
