ISA 2022 OVERVIEW
In the 28th edition of the Investment Strategy Annual, we address the themes that will shape the real estate investment environment for at least the next three years and likely longer.
What Lies Ahead 2022
The macro themes in the 2022 edition of LaSalle’s Investment Strategy Annual, provide a road map for navigating real estate markets around the world in the years ahead. We focus on five major trends, which when taken together, form the basis for our recommendations.
The Endemic Economy
Higher Standards for Real Estate
Rising liquidity and inflation
Climate Change: Adaptation and Mitigation
Secular Drivers of Demand (DTU+E)
The strong financial performance of real estate in 2021 re-established capital market confidence in the asset class.
As a result, allocations to real estate are rising and a wider range of risk-on and niche strategies make sense to find productive places to put money to work. The reasons for allocating part of an investment portfolio to real estate have strengthened in the past year, as bond yields have started to rise and stock market volatility increases. Savvy real estate investors will need to consider shorter leases, more operational intensity for demanding tenants, as well as factor in the rise of ESG factors.
