At the end of October we launched our “Winning in Growth Cities” report, an annual study which examines global commercial real estate investment activity, assessing leading cities as sources and destinations for capital. Throughout the report Asian cities stood out as offering outstanding opportunities for international and domestic investors alike, across a wide range of sectors.
With hundreds of investors, developers, and occupiers having already enjoyed the report, we took the time to catch up with report contributor and regional director of capital markets, Priyaranjan Kumar (PK). Working with in-country and overseas Capital Markets and Investment Sales teams across Asia, PK has been involved in transactions valued in excess of $1.50 billion in the last 3 years.
During the interview PK shared his expert insights on how the Asian property markets are evolving, what threats could stand in the way of future growth, which alternative sectors in Asia investors are taking a closer look at, and how he sees the key headlines from the report evolving in the coming months and years.
