Logistics Continues to Outperform Other Asset Classes
The commercial real estate sector faces a lot of uncertainty as we wait for the economy to stabilize. All asset classes have exhibited decreased performance according to at least some relevant metrics in Q1 2023. But amid the market instability, fundamental drivers of logistics real estate remain strong. Online sales increased despite the overall GDP slowdown. Andy Jassy, Amazon CEO, reiterated the company's focus on next day and same-day deliveries, and this will undoubtedly drive other retailers to follow suit. The re-shoring of US manufacturing operations has continued to accelerate.
BLP continues to selectively pursue opportunities in these difficult-to-access markets. We are pleased to announce two more strategic acquisitions.
As always, thank you for being part of our network!
