SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Industrial real estate assets such as logistics facilities remain the top investment choice for many global investors. Multi-family residential assets as well as single-family, student, and senior housing properties also remain a strong investment sector.
These were some of the findings in a global capital markets report by Colliers, which showed that in 1H2021, investment transaction volumes reached close to US$700 billion ($949.5 billion), which is a 6% increase from the previous year.
The report found that all geographic regions are anticipating a sustained recovery in investment activity in 2H2021 that could continue into 2022, supported by low interest rates and high liquidity.

The greatest growth could stem from Hong Kong, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, South Korea, and Italy. Less than a quarter of major capital destinations remain slightly off-track, hindered by lower vaccination rates and government movement restrictions.
Core and value-add investors are expected to become more active in the office sector as employees return to the office, and firms push ahead on future requirements to invigorate leasing demand. A major recovery is expected in key global cities including London and New York.
Cash buffers, GDP rebounds, and improved household incomes on the back of unprecedented government support schemes will likely help businesses and individuals fend off potential distress sales. But only well-funded assets in locations with sustainable demand in retail, leisure, and hospitality sectors are in a clear position to achieve asking prices.
