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?
