During the second-quarter 2014, commercial real estate investment (excluding land sales) has reached $25.4 billion in investment in the Asia-Pacific region.
Asia-Pacific investors are becoming less risk-averse and more willing to move up the risk curve. Risk associated with property investment has fallen during the second quarter of this year, with the DTZ risk multiplier, a gauge of property market risk, now close to its record low before the global financial crisis.
At the same time, the second quarter has seen renewed foreign interest in the region, with a record level of overseas investment. Private equity funds and institutional investors have been particularly active. This has led to buoyant investment activity across most markets in the region, suggesting that the region is now in “risk-on” mode.
Commercial real estate investment (excluding land sales) in the Asia-Pacific region reached US$25.4 billion in the second quarter, up 9 per cent compared to the first quarter of the year. This took investment volume in the first half to US$48.8 billion, up 3 per cent year on year.
