Report - CRE Debt in the European Economy 2016
"Commercial Real Estate lending and its appropriate regulation is of great importance to the European economy. The paper sets out the contribution of CRE debt in Europe to the real economy. It considers the changing stricture of the market, the characteristics of lending strategies, the impact of new regulation and its implications for the distribution of capital.
While the financial risk of over exuberant lending at the peak of the market is recognised, the economic risk of undersupply of CRE debt capital is poorly understood. The research assesses the contribution of CRE debt to the economy in terms of productivity, consumption and investment, explaining its crucial role as a facilitator of commercial activity the provision of business and social infrastructure."
