SINGAPORE (February 24, 2020) — The outbreak of a new infectious disease, a slowing global economy, ongoing trade negotiations, high asset valuations, and disruptive technology may act as headwinds to favorable real estate performance. At the same time, low-to-zero interest rates, abundant liquidity, rising institutional allocation to real estate, improving real estate market transparency, and more measures for additional monetary and fiscal stimulus among major Asia Pacific - are all tailwinds driving favorable real estate performance in the region, according to LaSalle Investment Management’s Investment Strategy Annual (ISA) 2020. Our market sector recommendations for the Asia Pacific are more targeted for 2020 than prior years. Individual countries within the region may have different responses to these potential headwinds and tailwinds.
