 “While a number of other transactions may yet sign before December 31st, the outturn for the year to date is in excess of €2.5 billion, with the sale of The Square shopping centre in Tallaght being the largest investment transaction signed in the last 12 month period. This represents a large volume of individual transactions although in the absence of delveraging activity and a lack of portfolio sales during 2017, the volume of investment spend is down compared to the extraordinary period between 2014 and 2016”.
