    LaSalle ISA 2019: Investing in APAC real estate in an environment of rising volatility and uncertainty; Investors to stay focused, seek signs of late-cycle excesses, and temper risks with a low beta + high alpha approach

    SINGAPORE, HONG KONG (February 27, 2019) — According to LaSalle Investment Management’s Investment Strategy Annual (ISA) 2019, the fundamental drivers of real estate occupier markets are likely to retain their “just right” status in 2019. However, investors should expect an eventual cyclical inflection, and watch for signs of late-cycle excesses and risk taking. In 2019, investors are expected to make investment decisions in an environment of rising volatility and uncertainty. If a recession comes, leased real estate will not be immune, but it will be a “low beta”, or less sensitive financial asset.
