Asia real estate: what’s hot and what’s not?

  • With yields in Asia at levels which could be deemed uncompetitive with those in the US & Europe, is there an increased appetite for moving up the risk curve to provide better returns?
  • Does moving further up the risk curve offer opportunities for investing in some of Asia’s developing economies?
  • How can we reconcile increased risk appetite with the increased institutional capital flowing into Asian markets, given their traditionally risk-averse investment profile?

  • Following record hotel occupancy in 2015, what’s the outlook for 2017 and beyond?
  • How much do external economic factors such as low oil prices factor into hotel successes and therefore hotel investment?
  • With US $27 billion worth of CMBS loans due to expire in 2016 and 2017, could this wall of maturities create the most dynamic financing period the industry has ever experienced?
  • Do hotel investors need to think differently now in the age of millennial travelers, and does that have any bearing on the attractiveness of the investment?
