Culture and connectivity
Our innovative research approach captures structural megatrends and tactical real estate fundamentals to identify cities we believe are best positioned for investment. Vienna is one of these cities:
As a key hub in Europe, Vienna’s extensive transport system serves as a connection point for people and goods on their way to central, eastern and southeastern Europe.
One of the fastest-growing European capitals, Vienna boasts a population of 1.8 million. That number is predicted to grow to more than 2 million by 2029.
Vienna is a global economic center and the seventh wealthiest city in Europe. Key industries include food and luxury commodities, mechanical engineering and steel construction, chemicals and vehicle manufacturing.
More international companies set up business in Vienna in 2019 than in all of Austria’s other federal provinces combined. Vienna is a popular convention city, hosting organizations such as the United Nations and OPEC.
Vienna was named the world’s most livable city for the tenth consecutive time in 2019 by the Mercer Quality of Living Index. This historic center is rich in architecture, art and music culture.

A word on risk
Responsible investing incorporates Environmental Social Governance (ESG) factors that may affect exposure to issuers, sectors, industries, limiting the type and number of investment opportunities available, which could result in excluding investments that perform well. Real estate investments are subject to various risks, including fluctuations in property values, higher expenses or lower income than expected, and potential environmental problems and liability. Please consider all risks carefully prior to investing in any particular strategy. A portfolio’s concentration in the real estate sector makes it subject to greater risk and volatility than other portfolios that are more diversified and its value may be substantially affected by economic events in the real estate industry. International investing involves risks, including risks related to foreign currency, limited liquidity particularly where the underlying asset comprises real estate, less government regulation in some jurisdictions, and the possibility of substantial volatility due to adverse political, economic or other developments.
