Asian investors setting their sights overseas/china/en-gb/news/616/asian-investors-turn-to-overseas-property-marketsAsian investors setting their sights overseas<p><span style="font-size:18px;"><em>​​Second quarter data show more capital targeting real estate; United States, United Kingdom and Germany top destinations, according to JLL</em>  </span></p><p><strong>SHANGHAI, 16 August 2017</strong> - Investors are allocating more capital to <a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/zh-cn/services/investors-and-developers/private-investor-advisory" target="_blank">real estate</a> worldwide, with Asian investors now accounting for five of the 10 biggest cross-border spenders. Inter-regional investment reached US$19.5 billion in Q2 2017, up 71 per cent from the same period last year.</p><p>Globally, China was the third biggest source of cross-border capital into real estate in the first half of the year at US$6.2 billion, behind Germany and the UK. After China, Asia's biggest spenders were Hong Kong (US$4.9 billion), Singapore (US$4.1 billion), South Korea (US$1.9 billion) and Japan (US$1.6 billion). Almost all of their capital targeted the world's three largest and most liquid real estate markets, with the US receiving US$10 billion, the UK pocketing US$6 billion, and Germany US$2 billion.</p><h3><strong>China star performer in the region</strong></h3><p>In what could be the biggest single asset deal of the year, Chinese conglomerate HNA acquired 245 Park Avenue, a Midtown office tower, for US$2.21 billion in May. "The purchase underscores the continued prominence of Chinese capital in global real estate markets despite capital controls," adds Mr Green-Morgan. "Given this is the first wave of Chinese capital going global, it remains concentrated on the biggest, most liquid markets in the world."</p><p>While Asian investors are looking overseas, they also continue to hunt for deals closer to home, with continued interest in office and logistics assets across the region. Domestic investments amounted to US$49 billion in Asia Pacific in Q2. Domestic demand continues to drive the Chinese real estate market in particular, but foreign buyer interest is on the rise, accounting for a third of total transaction volumes in Q2.</p><p>"With the capital curbs making it harder to invest outside of China, domestic investors will aim to invest more inside the country," says Mr Green-Morgan. "Domestic developers in particular will become a new pool of buyers for existing assets as they seek to deploy excess capital. With rising prices in Tier 1 cities, investors are starting to look at Tier 2 cities in China for good retail and logistics assets, as well as those with potential for conversion, such as retail into office space, or hotels into serviced apartments."</p><h3><strong>Industrial sector the next big thing</strong></h3><p>Looking globally, <a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/zh-cn/services/property-type/office" target="_blank">the office sector​</a> remains the top option for investors, however, the indus​​trial sector has become the next most sought-after asset, with sustained demand leading to US$24 billion invested in Q2 - a 28 per cent surge from Q2 last year.</p><p>"There is huge demand for scale in<a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/zh-cn/services/property-type/industrial-and-logistics" target="_blank"> the industrial and logistics sector</a> globally," explains Mr Green-Morgan. "The more mature markets – the US, UK, Germany, Canada and Japan – tend to offer that."</p><p>In Asia Pacific, total transaction volumes amounted to US$31 billion in Q2 2017, up six per cent from Q1. Investment volumes across the region were US$61 billion in the first half of 2017, versus US$54 billion in H1 2016. </p><p>Global real estate transaction volumes came in at US$153 billion for Q2 2017, up seven per cent from Q1. The total for the first half of 2017 was US$297 billion, up from US$290 billion for the same period last year.</p><p>For more information, download the latest Global Capital Flows <a href="http://www.theinvestor.jll/gcf/" target="_blank">here</a>.</p><p style="text-align:center;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;">​- ends -​</p><p><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br></span></p><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about <a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/services" target="_blank">JLL Serv​ices</a></em><br><p><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about </em><em style="line-height:1.6;"><a target="_blank" href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/news" style="line-height:1.6;">JLL News</a><br></em><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about​ </em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/research" style="line-height:1.6;"><em>JLL Research</em></a>​</p><p></p><div><br>​</div><span class="ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0 ms-rteThemeFontFace-1" style="background-color:#ffffff;"><strong><em>About JLL</em></strong></span><p style="font-family:"helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;margin-bottom:20px !important;line-height:1.57143 !important;color:#454545 !important;"><span class="ms-rteThemeFontFace-1">JLL (NYSE: JLL) is a leading professional services firm that specializes in real estate and investment management.

JLL Supports Cainiao Network and China Life’s Launch of RMB 8.5 Billion Logistics Warehousing Fund /china/en-gb/news/615/cainiao-network-partnered-with-china-lifeJLL Supports Cainiao Network and China Life’s Launch of RMB 8.5 Billion Logistics Warehousing Fund <p>​​​​Cainiao Network Technology recently partnered with China Life (www.chinalife.com.cn) to set up a logistics warehousing fund with a scale of RMB 8.5 billion. The venture is Cainiao's first logistics warehousing fund as well as the first RMB-denominated fund in China's logistics market. <a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/services/property-types/industrial-and-logistics" target="_blank">JLL's Logistics team</a> worked alongside <a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/services/investors-and-developers/appraisal-and-advisory" target="_blank">JLL's Corporate Appraisal and Advisory team</a> to provide reliable market analysis and asset assessment services for Cainiao and China Life in co-launching China's first RMB logistics property fund.</p><p>Cainiao Network Technology Co., Ltd. was jointly founded on May 28, 2013 by Alibaba and Intime together with Fosun, Forchn, STO Express, YTO Express, ZTO Express, and Yunda Express. The company is dedicated to promoting upgrade of the logistics industry, building commercial infrastructure, and providing consumers and merchants with platform-based, data-enhanced intelligent services.<strong></strong></p><p>With its in-depth understanding of China's logistics real estate market and abundant knowledge of leasing and investing for logistics assets,<strong> JLL's East China Logistics Team</strong> was appointed by Cainiao to conduct a targeted market analysis for their China-wide logistics warehouse portfolio.
