01 November 2022
What do European real estate investors need to know about investing in data centres?
This video is the first in a new series of snapshot videos from our European real estate experts at Allen & Overy on the key issues to consider when investing in or financing operational real estate.
Watch our short video, presented by Grace McLeish and Jeff Hermans, which considers the booming asset class of data centres and focuses on the main commercial and legal issues for investors to be aware of from the outset of the development lifecycle. A wide range of factors are analysed from electricity and power supply, connection, regulatory/permitting and data protection to contracting and financing.
As a real estate asset class, data centres are about much more than just bricks and mortar. Data centre projects require expertise from real estate, digital infrastructure, finance, M&A and energy teams.
