Brexit is starting to have effects. There are currently around 75,000 people employed in the financial sector in Frankfurt am Main. But according to information from the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung (FAS) newspaper from 4 June 2017, at least 10,000 new financial jobs are expected in the city. This is quite plausible in the face of Brexit, and even more so when you compare average shop rental prices: London: €61/m2, Paris: €53/m2, Dublin: €30/m2 and Frankfurt: only €19/m2.

According to FAS, Frankfurt has another key asset: the European Central Bank and its banking supervisory board are located there. In October, it will be decided whether this EU authority will also move to Frankfurt. The Frankfurt office property market is starting to become really active. JCC AG can support any bridge financing and preferred equity needed to take advantage of opportunities and short-notice deals quickly and without complications.
