Our latest Asia Pacific research report provides helpful insights to unlocking, what we believe, are winning markets in successful Asia Pacific cities both today in the future.

Over the next few decades, the weight of economic power and structural megatrends will lean heavily towards the Asia-Pacific region. By 2030, Asia Pacific, led by China, will account for nearly half of the world's output, more than 50% of the world's urban population growth and almost all of the top 50 global cities with the largest forecast change in wealthy households. Therefore, Asia Pacific remains highly compelling for institutions looking to build a sizeable core real estate portfolio, even more so in recent years, in light of heightened worldwide uncertainties following the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) in 2008. The region's more sturdy economic, demographic and political landscape provides risk mitigating and diversification benefits as well as a strong anchor to real asset values over the longer term.
