In the second half of 2014, we recorded the increase in the investment demand thanks to the greatest rate of the recovery of the world economy. Increasing capital flow and increasingly better economic data translated into good results of the real estate sector and growth of investments. We expect a significant recovery on investment markets in the coming year, which will be in part caused by the fast increase in assets and the activity of state property funds, commented Edward C. Forst, the president and general manager of the company Cushman & Wakefield, adding that the company recorded the highest gross income in its history.
High income and profit positively contributed to the balance of the company. According to Cushman & Wakefield, the company's net debt decreased by 91 million USD to the amount of 8.6 million USD (as at the date 31 December 2013).
