Asian Investors Drive Cross-Border Real Estate Surge in 2023

The global real estate landscape witnessed a significant surge in cross-border transactions in 2023, with Asian investors emerging as dominant players in overseas property acquisitions. Data compiled by Savills reveals that investors from Singapore, Japan, and Hong Kong collectively injected a staggering $48.1 billion into properties abroad, underscoring the region’s growing prominence in global real estate markets.

According to Simon Smith, Head of Asia Pacific Research and Consultancy at Savills, this influx of capital underscores the formidable influence wielded by Asian investors on the global stage. “Asian investors have become a force to be reckoned with,” Smith asserts, highlighting the region’s substantial contributions to real estate markets across the Americas, Europe, and the Asia Pacific.

Singapore emerged as a frontrunner in cross-border real estate investment, with investors from the city-state deploying a staggering $25.3 billion overseas. This figure, when measured per capita, eclipsed investments from the United States by over 40-fold, showcasing Singapore’s outsized financial clout in global real estate transactions.

Meanwhile, Japanese investors made significant strides in outbound investment, allocating $8.1 billion to foreign real estate—a remarkable 170% increase from previous years. Notable players such as Mitsubishi Estate, Mori Trust, and the Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) spearheaded Japan’s foray into overseas markets, with a notable focus on the US, Australia, and Indonesia.

Hong Kong investors, too, played a pivotal role in driving cross-border transactions, committing $8.4 billion to overseas ventures. While a substantial portion of investments was directed towards projects in China, Hong Kong investors also ventured into international markets, contributing to the region’s robust outbound investment activity.

The shift towards industrial and retail properties emerged as a notable trend in the global real estate landscape, with investors gravitating towards assets poised to benefit from structural tailwinds. “Industrial properties continue to enjoy favorable momentum,” Smith notes, “while retail assets are poised for resurgence after a challenging period.”

Despite challenges posed by hybrid work models and evolving office dynamics, prime assets in gateway cities continued to garner investor interest. Deals such as the acquisition of 245 Park Avenue in New York underscored investors’ confidence in premium office spaces amidst evolving workplace trends.

In essence, Asian investors have cemented their position as key drivers of cross-border real estate transactions, reshaping the global real estate landscape and driving investment activity across diverse asset classes.
