“COVID-19 has brought much uncertainty, but it has also solidified several ongoing trends: the digitization of work; the transformation of physical retail; and the shift towards environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations. These trends are expected to have a critical influence on how real estate markets will fare over the coming years. Understanding their longer-term impacts will be key to future success.”
