Revival signs in real estate M&A
The Covid-19 pandemic caused a noticeable slowdown in real estate M&A activity. Despite this, there are early signs in the market of a bounce back. Opportunistic/strategic deals are still completing and many investors have capital reserves ready to be deployed. As a firm, over the last few weeks we have noticed an increase in initial real estate M&A activity. As part of this we are seeing new trends emerging specifically in response to Covid-19 (and we expect more to emerge in the short to medium term).
We have prepared a briefing exploring how future real estate M&A is likely to differ and what the new “normal” may look like for real estate M&A deals.
