Voice of Real Estate
Held on 21 July 2020, the APREA Virtual Roadshow focused on Logistics shines a spotlight on the challenges and opportunities for one of the fastest-growing real estate investment sectors.
We heard from top industry leaders from Knight Frank, ESR, Logos, Hiranandani Group, IndoSpace on assessing investment opportunities in logistics properties. If you missed this session, the webinar is now available online for viewing.
Webinar Key Takeaways
- To continuously stay ahead in this competitive logistics real estate market, innovation, hardware and soft skills are all very important – a network with strong regional presence, economies of scale, quality assets, land sourcing ability, capital raising and asset management skills, good tenant base and proven track record.
- Strong outlook for capital investment and fundraising activities in APAC logistics. The sector is poised to accelerate rather than saturate. Cap rates are expected to remain high, driven by e-commerce growth and scarcity of institutional-grade assets.
- Logistics real estate in Asia continues to perform well. Core markets like Japan, China and South Korea have high capital values and therefore are the most attractive; Southeast Asia has good potential due to robust demographics and income growth.
