Market trends and drivers 

The European real-estate services sector is a promising market, which is set to benefit from the growth rate of outsourced real-estate services and a trend towards an integrated service offering to customers.

Investment potential

Focus going forward lies on further developing the integrated services offering across its growing European platform. The plan is to expand Apleona’s already strong platform by organic growth as well as via acquisitions and to grow stronger than the market in Europe.

The intention is to create a European leader in the real-estate services sector and to further develop the integrated services offering across its growing European platform leveraging the strong technical capabilities of Apleona.
