BF.Quarterly Barometer – what the real estate finance industry is thinking
The BF.Quarterly Barometer is one of the most important indicators of sentiment in the commercial real estate finance sector in Germany. It offers detailed insight into the business climate in the industry. The BF.Quarterly Barometer surveys around 110 experts, most of whom are directly responsible for lending to real estate companies. The barometer score is calculated as the composite of various individual scores. The panel comprises representatives of various banks and other finance providers and is prepared by bulwiengesa AG. Prof. Steffen Sebastian, Chair of Real Estate Finance at IREBS, University of Regensburg, acts as scientific adviser for the Quarterly Barometer. He regularly authors the foreword to the Quarterly Barometer, in which he analyses and interprets the results of the survey.
The monthly Market Radar – topical opinion
Once a month, Francesco Fedele, CEO of BF.direkt AG, and Prof. Steffen Sebastian, Chair of Real Estate Finance at IREBS, University of Regensburg, discuss the latest key developments and trends in commercial real estate finance. The topics range from the development of real estate prices and new regulatory initiatives to the European Central Bank’s interest rate policy. The two experts comment on new trends and analyse the market, clearly criticising failings while also coming up with constructive suggestions and initiatives.
