Dear Readers

We are all living in challenging times at present. Having scarcely got to grips with the worst social consequences of the global pandemic, new clouds gathered on the horizon at the beginning of 2022 due to the geopolitical tensions in eastern Europe. This was closely followed by a rise in the price of raw materials, an emerging energy crisis and an interest rate pivot. Despite the largely negative expectations, the Swiss economy recorded a pleasing performance. Inflation is currently half the European level, employment is solid and immigration into the «safe haven» of Switzerland has risen sharply again after the pandemic years. This also had a positive impact on us, the country’s largest listed platform for real estate investments, enabling us to report another successful year and favourable results.

The phrase «turning point» is commonly used in various contexts at the moment. Epidemiologists, for example, are using it to refer to a new era and the considerably higher risk of pandemics.
