Global Real Estate best investment 2016

Market consensus now has equities flat to negative in 2016. Much of it is due to rate hikes and an end to QE in the U.S. After that, China and oil are to blame for everything else. It’s hard to find an equity bull except at the value funds. Bonds? Forget about it. Outside of a handful of emerging market local currency debt managers, global bond funds are bracing for a drought.

“Volatility is likely to rip through financial markets in the first half of 2016. Today’s turbulence is only the beginning,” says Mr. Marc Revan , Sales Director for  Icon Solutions Asia and Europe seen here at the launch of Property Crowd Funding specialists Prodigy Network, Icon Soluitions is a financial advisory firm based in the Singapore. “There’s a cocktail of uncertainty, with the main ingredients including China’s economic woes, higher interest rates in the U.S., historically low oil prices, Britain’s referendum on exiting the European Union, and increasing tensions in the Middle East,” he said.

For fixed income, Christopher Wyke of Schroders in London adds his pocket full of six pence to the table: “We are entering a period of a bond bear market that I think will last the next 25 years.”

So where’s the safe haven with a plausible return on investment this year? For Colliers International, 2016 is the year of real estate.

Investor sentiment toward real estate is projected to remain positive, according to Colliers Global Investor Outlook 2016, released on Monday. Primary target markets will continue to draw the most interest, with moderating risk appetite, stable economic conditions, and low interest rates driving increased investment in secondary markets. Transactional activity in the first 9 months of 2015 brought in $625 billion of direct property investment worldwide, representing an 11% increase over the same period of 2014, according to Real Capital Analytics. This year is expected to be even more.

“Our report suggests that…long term secure investment in core markets will be the norm,” says John B. Friedrichsen, CFO of Colliers International. “Large volumes of capital already raised will increasingly seek out opportunities in tier-two cities and in recovering markets.”
