Think European value-add: Why a short-term strategy needs a long-term philosophy

Aerial view of Madrid
Investors cannot rely on what worked before. Even short-term strategies need to be reconsidered and reformulated to factor in changes that are shaping our society and our behaviour.

Value-add real estate strategies, often considered short-term, need more than mispriced opportunities to be successful in our view.

Understanding the complexities of tomorrow’s world and identifying assets that serve the requirements of the future are embedded in Nuveen Real Estate’s approach to value-add investing.

We apply insights from our research on structural megatFrends – technology, demographics and sustainability – to determine which assets are worthy of a place in a value‑add portfolio.

In this paper, we discuss how these trends affect European countries; the implications for a value-add strategy; and the opportunities in the logistics, office, retail and living sectors.
