Our Real Estate team in Zurich comprises the areas of Valuation, Transactions and Transformation/Strategy. The majority of our clients are institutional investors with investment properties of various types (residential, office, commercial, retail, logistics, hotel, nursing, hospital, etc.).

The analysis and evaluation of this market data in combination with the analysis of the real estate data we collect is becoming increasingly important.
