Capital Markets and Investment Services
Focusing on understanding office, retail or industrial assets and investors’ needs in order to deliver the best results, we will determine your optimal investment strategy, whether market conditions dictate that you should buy, sell, hold or refinance.
Colliers can connect you with the people you need to know – owners and developers as well as local and institutional investors. Our team in Romania has closed the most deals in the local market, including the largest transactions, and set the current pricing benchmark.
With our extensive knowledge, when the appropriate investment cycle arrives, we provide a clear competitive analysis and transaction history of comparable assets to maximise the property’s momentum in the market. We will lead you through the due diligence process to ensure a successful conclusion. At the same time, we work with you to ensure confidentiality and minimise disruption to clients during this process.
Our team has advised transactions where new investors entered the Central and Eastern European (CEE) market, helping deepen the market and improve liquidity. With our integrated global platform, we can openly exchange knowledge and expertise. The CEE team regularly meets and roadshows together to pitch markets and properties to investors.
