• CBRE Research’s 2017 Asia Pacific Investor Intentions Survey published earlier this year found that investors are increasingly motivated by yield spread rather than capital appreciation. Investors are also demonstrating a stronger willingness to engage in core-plus, value-added and opportunistic investments.
  • Against this backdrop, gaining a thorough understanding of occupier behaviour has become a critical component of formulating a successful investment strategy.
