  • Investment Management

    CRE investment volumes reached record highs in Europe in 2017. An undersupply of housing in the UK coupled with long term capital chasing secure income has seen the development of PRS property in the UK. A series of recent changes in the NPL market has affected investment volumes in the asset class.

    In this dynamic and constantly evolving investment landscape, Caravel has helped clients retain their competitive edge by sourcing the best talent, niche skill sets and market intelligence quickly.
