Asia Pacific Investment Trends Q3 2016


08 Nov 2016

  • Transaction volume increased by 5.6%% q-o-q to US$24.6 billion thanks to improved market sentiment driven by the stabilisation of bond and equity markets and the low interest rate environment.
  • Market activity was polarised and comprised of a few large transactions worth over US$500 million and numerous smaller sized deals below US$100 million. Australia and Japan remained the key destinations for foreign investors, collectively accounting for 55% of cross-border investment.
  • Full year transaction volume is expected to contract given that activity in Q4 2016 is unlikely to be on par with the same period last year, which recorded the third highest quarterly turnover since 2009. However, several major transactions are expected to be closed in the final quarter.
  • The price gap between buyers and sellers will continue to hinder investment activity as landlords remain under little pressure to sell amid the low interest rate environment. Yields are expected to remain flat.
