CEO Outlook 2024

  • Last year’s CEO survey was conducted as the markets fought headwinds that looked set to hinder progress. The list has changed little and, if anything, it has grown. Rising interest rates have become high interest rates. And high energy and construction costs, inflation, and national economies with low-to-no growth, remain.The war in Ukraine persists and the geopolitical threat of conflict in the Middle East, and its potential to disrupt supply chains, can be added to the list.

    Our annual survey of real estate chiefs reveals their thoughts on the previous year and what 2024 might hold for markets across Europe.
