German lending study wins backers

The second ‘IREBS’ German debt study has attracted a raft of new sponsors.

INREV, the Commercial Real Estate Finance Council Europe and the German Property Federation (ZIA) are supporting the 2014 survey. They join the debut report’s sponsors, who include Real Capital Analytics, DTZ, JLL and Bulwiengesa.

The survey, expected to be published in October, is carried out by Regensburg University’s International Real Estate Business School, advised by Bill Maxted and Trudi Porter, authors of the UK De Montfort University lending report.

Last year 25 lenders took part, including most pfandbrief-funded banks, after German mortgage banking association the VDP lent its support.
