Developments on the International Capital Markets
2018 was a very unsettled year for the international capital markets. Uncertainty regarding future interest rate developments and brewing trade conflicts, coupled with international political tension and fears of escalation, put pressure on capital markets across the globe.
The Dow Jones, for example, lost 6.7% in 2018, with the Dax losing as much as 18.3%. The EPRA index for European real estate stocks also closed the year with negative performance, namely at 1981.17 points, down by 11.7% in a year-on-year comparison.
Looking at the performance of the eurozone’s major industrial sectors, it becomes clear that virtually all segments, including the real estate segment that also includes Vonovia’s shares, came under pressure in 2018.
