M&G Real Estate - A world view: the case for global core real estate investment

Real estate has earned itself a firm place in institutional portfolios, with worldwide investment in property reaching a record $13.6 trillion1. However, one key difference remains between investor attitude to real estate and to other asset classes. Pension funds and other institutions tend to see international allocation as an integral element of bond or equity holdings. In real estate, however, many still only invest in the domestic market and are willing to consider global property only in exchange for a premium return (and therefore higher risk).

DTZ Investors - The case for international real estate investment: Why do domestic investors venture overseas?

There is no denying that the UK property market has been an exciting playground for real estate investors over recent years. Landlords have enjoyed rebounding rents on the back of widespread economic recovery, coupled with strong price inflation thanks to large waves of capital targeting the sector. Market returns in excess of 10% p.a. over the past 5 years have kept property investors busy in their home market. However, with domestic and global headwinds well reported, many are predicting that the good times could soon stop rolling. We at DTZ Investors are forecasting total returns from UK real estate to slow considerably in the period 2016 – 2020. Such subdued UK predictions are encouraging increasing numbers of traditionally domestic-focused property investors to consider
opportunities overseas.

UBS Asset Management - APAC Real Estate Outlook – 2H16

APAC domestic demand drivers remained resilient in 2Q16, supported by further monetary easing, relatively healthy jobs markets and the ongoing structural shift towards services sector production. The latter is being driven by changes in consumer preferences, improvements in technology, wage growth (in emerging markets) but also lower global growth. Weaker trade volumes as a result of slower global growth, increasing trade restrictions and lack of significant liberalization agreements in recent years means that Asia's historical drivers of capital spending and exports have taken a back seat to services based consumption and jobs.

UBS Asset Management - Eurozone Real Estate Outlook – 2H16

The slowdown in China and other emerging markets viewed in conjunction with the uncertainties surrounding Brexit, has led to a downward revision of economic growth prospects in the eurozone. However, the threat of contagion appears limited for now. Domestic demand in the eurozone has expanded at a healthy rate so far in 2016, and the recovery has broadened away from household spending. While Brexit could be a shock that brings the current self-sustained recovery to halt, it seems to be far too soon to assume that this is inevitable.

Although the Dutch path towards recovery looks favourable, is could be a winding one. The main cause of concern is the ramifications of a British exit from the EU that could mean that exports to Britain, its second largest trading partner, slow sharply. On the other hand, should ‘Brexit’ be the outcome of the June 23rd UK referendum vote, then a large pool of European and foreign capital is likely to look harder for European placement. If that is the case, the Netherlands will be favourably positioned as one of Europe’s most attractive investment destinations.

CBRE - U.S Early Indicators Q1 2016

The U.S. Early Indicators report is a simple early warning system designed to alert us to changes in economic conditions, as well as property and debt markets. This quarter’s release shows that while real estate fundamentals remain positive, a contracting cap rate spread, stock market volatility and a deceleration in the growth of a number of leading economic variables necessitates a more cautious approach moving forward. Following several years of “fair” pricing, real estate is now “expensive” relative to corporate debt. Total returns for privately owned real estate remain buoyant, while REIT returns, though also positive, have flattened. The Leading Economic Indicators index points to further economic growth but at a less robust pace relative to recent periods.
