Industries & Sectors

Special Property Sectors

Our own recently published research report [link] indicates that 28% of all investment transactions in 2018 were in specialist sectors – an all-time high. Our teams of specialist sector experts help developers and occupiers in these markets.

How we can help you:

We support investors, occupiers and developers throughout the world. Our concept is built upon three key pillars:

  • Insight-driven advice: We base our advice on data and knowledge that we obtain through our own research and subsequent evaluation of the latter. We combine data-driven analysis of real estate with a deep understanding of macro trends and themes.
  • Operator understanding: Investing in specialist sectors and commercial real estate requires a deep understanding of operating models. Our teams are made up of advisors who understand how these services function and what their specific challenges are.
  • Experts with international capital experience: Our experience of managing global capital flows has given us a first-hand view of the nuances and challenges of the different marketplaces – with our global network of clients and advisors contributing to this.

Our services

We operate within the following specialist sectors:


Our expertise covers all aspects of the healthcare market – from private hospitals to retirement villages – and our healthcare team provides a full range of services to owners and operators.

Student accommodation

Supported by tools such as our Student Accommodation Tracker, our teams help universities, developers, investors and local government to make better informed decisions based on sound information.


We advise operators and investors in transport-related properties of every shape and size, drawing on our experience and knowledge in the areas of construction, environmental issues, health & safety and regulatory compliance.

Private Residential

Micro living report

The market for micro apartments is becoming increasingly attractive. The segment has developed into an independent asset class. National and international investors are showing interest in this type of  real estate and operator market and are looking to get started. At the same time, the market is still very opaque and, compared to other countries, is very fragmented.
