CBRE: Cross-border investments pick up

By on Jun 15, 2012 in Property News

Asia Pacific has seen a significant increase in the volume of cross-border investments since the financial crisis in 2009, says CBRE, a global commercial real estate services firm.

CBRE Research calculated cross-border investment at US$15.41 billion in 2011 for the region, up from $5.57 billion in 2009 following the global financial crisis.

Mike Steur, head of valuation & advisory services for CBRE in Asia Pacific, said with an increasingly global capital flow, the long-term trend will be more cross-border transactions.

He said clients are demanding higher valuation standards and greater transparency in terms of leasing and transaction data.

Danny Mohr, executive director and head of CBRE International Valuation Asia, said superior firms not only seek good returns but also need to manage their risk. “Our international, institutional and sophisticated clients that are entering, operating or expanding in Asia need us to customise a strategy that matches traditional valuation methods with sophisticated cash flow and data modelling,” he said.

With regards to investment areas of interest, Mr Mohr said development and investment in logistics facilities and shopping centres, particularly in China, is strong.

Investors and developers are looking beyond the core office markets of Asia’s key cities. The company sees some really astute strategies among clients, and not just in direct property but also in secondaries, he said.
