Singapore overtook the US as the largest investor in Asia Pacific real estate for the first time: Knight Frank
Knight Frank global head of capital markets Neil Brookes states numerous private business offices and government-linked business (GLCs) in Singapore hold significant equity set to be released. The larger market dislocation caused by rapidly raised credit expenses creates opportunities for all equity investors to use capital while many other institutional capitalists are resting on the side projects, he adds.
“The force of the Singapore dollar is likewise generating big establishments such as GIC and many other GLCs to seek chances in markets namely Japan, China, South Korea and Australia. Especially, GIC has actually continually enhanced its allotment to the real estate asset class, with investments in the US now accounting for about 22.4% of the total inbound financial investment volume from Singapore,” says Brookes.
“For industrial real estates, the blend of restricted stock of institutional-grade properties and continual long-term need from ecommerce, life science and technology are sustaining investment interest. Likewise, the information center market is increasingly considered as a stable, long-lasting financial investment opportunity,” states Knight Frank head of research study Asia Pacific Christine Li.
Singapore has already become the main source of Asia Pacific real estate financial investments YTD, exceeding the US for the first time, according to a report by Knight Frank.
In response to these demands, investors in the region have shifted their attention to new economic climate investments, particularly in the industrial and data facility industries. On the other hand, the acquisition of office has taken a backseat, reflecting the persistently difficult business position and a weak return-to-office trend.

Asia Pacific’s business real estate industry observed minimal movement in 3Q2023, with investment event having 53.4% y-o-y. According to Knight Frank, the discernible pullback from residential and international investors underscores their unwillingness to invest in the current high-interest price setting, in which yield spreads have actually constricted to a certain degree that particular markets are experiencing unfavorable danger premiums.
