Market View: Commercial property market trends in Asia - what’s fuelling the 38% drop in investment volume in Q3 and why is Singapore bucking the trend?

Investment volume came up to be just US$32.6 billion in Q3, a 38 per cent drop from a year ago. 

And across major income producing property sectors, retail fared the worst with transaction volume dropping by over 54% on a yearly basis. There were also signs of yields moving out for some sectors, such as the industrial sector in South Korea.

On Market View, Prime Time’s finance presenter Chua Tian Tian spoke with Benjamin Chow, Head of Asia Real Assets Research at MSCI for more.
