    LaSalle Mid-Year ISA update: Asia Pacific is Likely to Lead Economic Recovery

    Economies around the world have been damaged more severely than any peacetime event since World War II. Although none of us predicted a pandemic, it took this kind of tail-risk event to derail the Asia-Pacific region, the fastest growing region in the world. However, the combination of high levels of trust in Asia Pacific governments, an earlier start to the downturn and recovery, unprecedented monetary and fiscal stimulus packages, and the region’s important role in global supply chains, especially China lends resilience to the region. These macro factors, combined with high-frequency indicators, shed light upon our outlook for Asia Pacific economies and real estate markets, despite the uncertain duration of the pandemic, according to LaSalle’s mid-year Investment Strategy Annual (ISA) report.

    LaSalle Mid-Year ISA: COVID-19 accelerates trends in European real estate

    More than just a phase - Jacques Gordon | Global Strategist
    Time has simultaneously slowed down, as we all work from home, and it has sped up. Last month’s “unthinkable” has become this month’s norm. Last week’s downside scenario has become this week’s baseline, and next week’s upside. Real estate investors are “zooming” with each other and saying, well at least we didn’t cause this, did we?

    LaSalle’s Bill Maher: Real Estate Economists Staying Positive but Reining in Optimism

    Urban Land Magazine

    After predicting an uptick in U.S. economic growth and interest rates six months ago, real estate economists have tempered their forecasts, moving closer to the predictions of one year ago. While the April 2017 optimism could be attributed to proposals to reform the tax code, reduce regulatory burdens, and invest in infrastructure, little progress has been made on tax reform and infrastructure and the economy seems to be back to business as usual after the global financial crisis. As a result, real estate economists now have lower expectations about economic growth, employment growth, and interest rates than they had in the spring.
