World Office Yield Spectrum - 2H 2017

November 2017

Expectations of higher interest rates have remained just that, expectations. Uneven economic data as well as rising geo-political tensions have combined to create an unstable environment for rate increases.

Looking at the market over the next six months, a healthy deal pipeline and plenty of momentum suggest that real estate  has not fallen out of favour as an asset class.

While prices remain generally high or continue to rise, however, volumes have softened as willing sellers are currently thin on the ground and potential purchasers balk at high valuations. We continue to believe that there is no shortage of capital out there and sovereign funds and institutions continue to raise their allocations to real estate, in some cases from single to double digits. Chinese capital meanwhile is becoming more selective.
