Asia Pacific Investment Trends Q3 2017


15 Nov 2017

  • Asia Pacific commercial real estate investment turnover rose to US$ 31 billion in Q3 2017, an increase of 2.0% q-o-q. Year-to-date turnover was up 14% to US$ 84 billion amid robust activity in China and Singapore.
  • Strict controls on capital outflows in China ensured domestic buyers continued to focus on their local market. Solid activity from property companies and funds pushed up YTD transaction volume by 63% y-o-y to US$ 23 billion, of which 82% was accounted for by local buyers.
  • The office rental recovery in Singapore lured a number of domestic investors back home. Major transactions included an S-REIT’s purchase of Asia Square Tower 2 for US$1.5 billion. Other upbeat markets included Japan, where several foreign funds purchased assets in regional cities where yields and prices are more attractive compared to Tokyo.
  • Experienced foreign investors displayed a solid interest in South Korea despite geopolitical concerns. In Hong Kong, the expected reintroduction of the industrial revitalisation scheme helped stimulate activity.
