The Asia Pacific real estate market has grown into the largest in the world, offering increasingly high levels of maturity, transparency and liquidity. This has created a wide and attractive universe of core real estate opportunities in a region once dominated by opportunistic investors.
Institutional investors can now benefit from Asia's strong economic growth, achieve sustainable long-term returns and increase risk adjusted portfolio performance without going higher up the risk curve.
Top three trends in Asia Pacific property market:
- Developed APAC economies are expected to recover relatively quickly from H1 2021 onwards owing to their relative preparedness in handling the pandemic and governments’ strong fiscal and monetary support
- COVID-19 has accentuated the need for businesses to increase operational resilience and adapt faster to structural trends, particularly as economic uncertainties linger
- Real estate occupiers’ needs and preferences are thus expected to evolve in line with trends such as increased automation, telecommuting, omni-channelling and smart living; investors should leverage structural trends to future-proof their investment portfolios
