London, 31 March, 2017 – JLL has been named the number one real estate investment adviser in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region in 2016 for the sixth year running, in data released by Real Capital Analytics (RCA).

In its latest ranking, RCA, an independent body which monitors real estate sales volumes worldwide, has positioned JLL as top sales adviser overall in EMEA with 19.4% market share*, having advised on sales worth US$35.9 billion in 2016.

As well as leading on the sell-side, JLL capital markets teams have also been active in buying, mergers & acquisitions, debt, club and non-performing loans transactions, advising on more than US$40.1 billion in financing globally over the past two years. 

Matthew Richards, Head of Capital Markets, EMEA, JLL, said: “This is a great result, consistent with previous years, and recognises JLL’s sales expertise around the world. However, this is only one part of the range of services that we provide. Our clients tell us that our unique understanding of the occupier market, deep knowledge of global capital, financial expertise and sector insights help them to achieve their investment ambitions throughout the real estate life cycle and across the capital stack.”

JLL has also been ranked number one sales adviser by traded volume in the Asia Pacific region for the sixth consecutive year, with 27.5% market share* and advising on more than US$20 billion of sales in 2016.
