Dan Innes, Nicol Dynes, Paul Strohm and Richard Betts

Meanwhile, UK REIT Hammerson recruits its new CEO from outside both the company and the country, Segro goes underground to provide last mile logistics and, among other logistics space news, Hamburg’s port operator has won a stake in the new logistics facility at Italian port Trieste.

Elsewhere, UBS says housing bubbles are building in several European cities. Dan Innes, Nicol Dynes and Paul Strohm join Richard Betts in your regular analysis of the key themes for the week in real assets.
