This RICS-CBRE CPD Seminar will give an overview of recent trends in Asia-Pacific commercial property markets and highlight investor intentions for the next one-to-two years. The seminar will provide valuable insights to those attempting to contextualize South East Asia relative to other major regional and global markets.
The RICS Global Commercial Property Monitor is a quarterly guide to the trends in the commercial property investment and occupier markets. The global sentiment survey covers more than 30 countries and can be broken down to region or city levels, and has proven to be an accurate leading indicator of many metrics measuring commercial property as well as broader macroeconomic trends.
The CBRE Investors Intentions Survey 2017 is an annual survey of more than 500 key investors across Asia Pacific. This survey captures investors’ intentions for the next 12 to 24 months with regards to investment capital size, risk appetite, geographical focus as well as sector focus. This presentation will present the key findings on South East Asia and Singapore.
