• Asian property investors most conservative globally

    22 October 2011

    Asian property investors were ranked lowest in terms of their appetite for risk on a global basis, according to a landmark survey released by Colliers International. The Global Investor Sentiment Survey is an annual survey which takes the pulse of property investors worldwide, measuring their risk appetite, optimism, key concerns and overall market outlook. This year’s survey was conducted in the first two weeks of August 2011. In Asia, the majority of investors surveyed remain optimistic in property investment.  65% of the overall respondents indicate that they will very likely expand their property portfolios in the next 6 months.

    Most investors are interested in buying within their own region. “Office spaces in Beijing and Shanghai are the Asian investors’ top preferences,” said Piers Brunner, Chief Executive Officer of Colliers International Asia. “Reduced risk appetite varies across the region, however, according to the survey findings, 69% of Asian investors expressed that they felt a tightening of credit as compared to 6 months ago.” Colliers International employs more than 12,500 professionals operating out of 512 offices in 61 countries.
