Two tips for Singaporean property investors amidst economic slowdown
Real estate investors must stick to ESG and other niche markets in APAC.
There are worries that there might be a technical recession but real estate investors in Lion City may find opportunities in APAC real estate.
Colliers said inflation prompts investors to increasingly seek higher returns through alternative investments.
Chris Pilgrim, managing director of global capital markets in Colliers’ Asia Pacific, said student housing is becoming an attractive asset class with capital.
He added that the APAC region is also making strong investments in senior living and healthcare. The first tip for Singapore investors is to actively identify and capitalise on these emerging real estate markets.
“These niche markets have the potential to deliver significant returns in the future,” said Pilgrim.
Damian Harrington, head of research for global capital markets & EMEA, said Singapore investors should also incorporate ESG principles.
“Developing a comprehensive and value-driven ESG strategy is crucial for long-term success. Integrating ESG across all aspects of real estate, including financing, leasing, sustainability, risk management, and talent retention, will provide a competitive edge and sustainable returns,” said Harrington.
