Chart of the Day: Singapore is fourth largest source of real estate investment

The Asia Pacific region accounted for half of transactions in 2018.

US, Canada and Germany beat Singapore as it landed 4th place as top sources for real estate investments, according to a Cushman & Wakefield Investment report.

The report stated that including development land, Asia Pacific continued to attract the greatest amount of investment in property as it accounts for half of transactions in 2018.

European volumes fell by 10% YoY in 2018, which is said to reflect the region’s lowest ever share of real estate investment, whilst the North American real estate market outperformed as it grew 16.9% YoY, and a 31% share of total investment.

Excluding development sites, transaction volume declines were noted for all regions except North America, where investment reached a post-Great Financial Crisis peak.

Latin America and MEA reported the lowest transaction volumes since 2009. Whilst all sources of capital pulled back on investment into EMEA, Latin America saw Chinese investors targeting the region.
