Asia Pacific Capital Markets in Focus - April 2016

​Transaction volumes in Asia Pacific came in at USD 24 billion in the first quarter of 2016, down 5% on the same quarter a year ago.

The shortfall was largely confined to Japan, which was down 26% on the introduction of negative interest rates in February, leading to uncertainty and yen strengthening contrary to BoJ expectation. Elsewhere, China was largely stable and Hong Kong performed on a y-o-y basis on the back of two large deals. Australia was up 32% y-o-y with foreign buyers remaining active. 

A strong rise in intra-regional flows between the countries in Asia Pacific has been underpinned by the success of Asia Pacific fund raising as well as Asian capital now increasingly confident with buying inside Asia Pacific.
