Asia Pacific Viewpoint - Uncovering value late in the cycle: Where should investors look in 2019?
Asia Pacific continues to enjoy one of its longest ever periods of uninterrupted economic expansion, driven by supportive monetary policy and robust growth in China.
However, end-of-cycle concerns are growing amid a range of headwinds including U.S.-China trade conflict and financial market volatility. In addition, pricing has already eclipsed the previous peak in most markets, even those offering low yields.
Nevertheless, recent informal gauges of market sentiment by CBRE indicate continued solid demand from investors. There remains a deep pool of potential buyers, and all indicators point to a substantial volume of capital aimed at Asia Pacific real estate in 2019.
This ViewPoint by CBRE Research and CBRE Capital Markets explains the short-term strategies buyers can adopt to take advantage of cyclical fluctuations, together with a range of long-term tactics available for investors seeking to capitalise on structural market changes.
