Asia Pacific Capital Markets in Focus - Jul 2016

Transaction volumes in Asia Pacific came in at USD 54 billion in the first half of 2016, stable compared with the same period a year ago despite global uncertainty. Volumes dipped slightly in the second quarter after strong performances in Singapore and stable results in Japan and Australia were countered by lighter deal flows in Hong Kong and mainland China. Singapore outshone in the quarter with transaction volumes more than doubled from the same period a year ago, helped by the sale of Asia Square Tower 1, the largest ever single-tower transaction in Asia Pacific.

Looking forward, we expect more deals in the pipeline for the second half of 2016 due to investor demand for safe-haven and selling pressure from some funds near expiry. Financial market volatility will likely enhance the attractiveness of some regional markets as a preferred destination for global capital. Our latest quarterly report features city profiles across 10 major markets. Looking at key market fundamentals, the 12-month outlook and notable transactions.
