Singapore lagged HongKong in world's top investment locations list
Singapore ranking in Q2 jumped to 7th from 21st but it fared below tight rival HongKong.
Here's the latest ranking from Jones lang LaSalle:
London enhanced its position as the most attractive city in the world for cross-border investment. According to JLL, the 2012 Olympics host city garnered $10 billion of deals in H1, a 30% increase from the same 2011 period.
Paris registered twice as much cross-border investment in H1 compared to H1 2011, but trails well behind
London. New York is ranked third, although demand has decreased from foreign investors in 2012 as they
struggle to match the transaction pace of domestic investors and prime stock remains scarce.
London also maintained its status as the most active city, with Paris, New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong
cementing their claims as top five investment locations .
"Despite the economic worries in the UK and across Europe, London’s position as a deep, transparent well established property market in addition to it being the most liquid in the world makes it the most
popular city amongst investors," said JLL.
