February 06, 2024

๐Ÿ”ฌ The beginning of the year seemed to us a good timing to ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐˜‚๐—น๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐˜๐˜‚๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜€ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—บ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ถ๐˜๐˜†, asking them about their expectations for the year.ย 

We are happy to share some feed-back coming from consulting about a dozen of our contacts.ย ย 

๐Ÿ‘‰ The recent decrease of LT interest rates is perceived as positive by some investors in terms of valuation of assets and impact on the economic evolution, but some remain nevertheless in a โ€œwait & seeโ€ position in terms of investment decision because of the uncertainty about the future evolution of LT rates which create some potential volatility in valuation.ย 

๐Ÿ‘‰ Limited growth expected in Europe in 2024 (around 1,5 %)

๐Ÿ‘‰ Some investors have already an identified pipeline that represent 50 % of their 2024 allocation

๐Ÿ‘‰ Risk aversion remains present and a preference is often expressed for more mature projects that already generate cash-flows versus early-stage projects. Strength of the (finance) team is key and also the quality of the reporting .ย 

๐Ÿ‘‰ย Some investors have unsurprisingly told us that they are more and more focusing on reputational risk and ESG within companies. ESG criteria are obviously becoming increasingly important.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Crowdlending platforms have globally seen the raised volume decrease in 2023 in comparison with 2022, while some players managed to maintain it.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Regarding the real estate sector, we feel a more positive attitude in comparison with last year and some willingness to consider investment opportunities

๐Ÿ‘‰ Some investors are keen to diversify away from Real Estate or other traditional asset classes towards infrastructure, energy or Real Estateย  in alternative specialized activities such as youth or mental healthย
