Catella: Risk evaluation reveals good investment opportunities in Europe
The analysis of 28 European locations in an office and retail portfolio shows an average total return of 7.95% at the end of 2017.
The top-5 performers are Dublin (12.1 %), Lyon (10.4 %), Stockholm (10.2 %), Paris (9.9 %), Barcelona (9.8 %) and Marseilles (9.8 %).
The bottom-6 performers include five German cities: Frankfurt (5.6 %), Hamburg (5.6 %), Cologne (5.7 %), Berlin (5.8 %) and Munich (6.5 %). The sextet is completed by Helsinki, with a historical annual total return of 5.9 %.
For average volatility or standard deviation, the following picture emerges:
The five German cities (Cologne: 5.0 %, Hamburg: 5.7 %, Frankfurt: 6.8 %, Munich: 7.1 %) and Helsinki (6.2 %) – as underperformers – record the lowest levels of relative volatility.
Three of the five riskiest cities are found among the top-5 performers: Dublin (21.2 %), Barcelona (12.9 %) and Paris (12.1 %).
When applying the Sharpe ratio – a measure that takes into account both value growth and volatility – the strongest values are attributable to Brussels (1.13), Amsterdam (1.06) and Lille (1.01).
Large-scale investors still believe that major cities are a must-have investment that ought to account for a substantial proportion of their portfolio. “With a view to traditional risk theory and the current conditions on the market, however, this maxim should be viewed with a certain degree of scepticism,” says Dr. Thomas Beyerle, Head of Group Research at Catella. A resulting “naïve” investment using the popular but simplified ABBA strategy is consequentially not an investment recommendation.
