As a result, the end-of-year 2021 valuations of CTP's revenue-generating portfolio are likely to be positively affected. CTP now considers that this compression of yields by the end of 2021, across the entire portfolio, is likely to be higher than 50bps, compared to the average yield of 6.0% at YE 2020 (based on annualized rental income).
Richard Wilkinson, Deputy General Manager and Chief Financial Officer of CTP NV Group, said: "The increase in transaction volumes, coupled with the accelerated decline in yields in logistics / light industrial properties in CEE markets, was evident in our portfolio in the third quarter. This broader market trend will have a substantial positive effect on our valuation, which is to be expected, given that CTP is the largest investor / operator in this real estate sector in the region. it is only at the end of December that the current significant evidence of prices is such that we can provide guidance on the direction of reporting from our external capital market appraisers. "
