Asia Pacific Capital Markets in Focus - January 2017

​Asia Pacific commercial real estate transactions held up remarkably well during the final quarter of 2016, despite market volatility following Brexit and US election results. Transaction volumes for the full year of 2016 came in at USD 130 billion, a 5% increase when compared to 2015. The full-year result was lifted by strong performance in China, Singapore and South Korea. Cross-border investors remained active and accounted for one-third of yearly transaction volumes across the region.

Looking forward to the next twelve months, we expect continued appetite for real estate from global institutional investors and asset disposals will provide opportunities. More investors will look at alternatives such as non-listed funds, JV/club deals and asset backed securities. There is potential for further yield compression in some markets as capital chases opportunities.
