On a risk-adjusted basis the property markets in Dutch cities acquit themselves well too, particularly the logistics markets of Amsterdam and Rotterdam and the office markets in Utrecht and Amsterdam.

“Unsurprisingly, retail is struggling albeit it is doing better than it was, mainly due to the repricing that we have seen in the market.”
