IPD - European Hotels outperform wider real estate market

(lifePR) (London, ) The IPD Pan Europe Annual Hotels Index has shown that the European Hotels sector continues to gain ground as an accepted property asset type with a total return of 6.6% in 2013, outperforming the wider market total return of 5.9%. This is a stronger total return compared with 2012 (5.8%).

Encouragingly, the IPD hotel sample increased this year to 742 assets with a value of €12.6bn, compared with 505 assets and €11.4bn in 2012, highlighting its shift from an alternative property asset class towards a mainstream sector.

Over the 13 year history of Pan European data series Hotels is clearly the least volatile of all sectors with particularly robust performance during the downturn.

Hotels outperformed all property types in 2013 except industrial, and also outperform over 3, 5, 10, 13 year annualised periods against retail, office, industrial & residential.

Split between income and capital, the return of 5.8% was from income, with capital growth for the period at 0.8%, up from 0% in 2012.

Of the twelve countries measured, the UK saw the strongest performance in 2013 with a total return of 11.2%, more than double the 2012 figure of 5.2%. The UK was followed by Austria at 6.4%.

Italy returned the lowest again at -3.17%, a fall from the 0.9% registered in 2012.

Mark Clacy-Jones, Vice President and Head of Core Research, IPD commented: "Hotels continue to grow as an accepted property type within investment portfolios or as specialist portfolios. This is driven by outperformance in relation to the main property types over a multitude of time periods."
