Capital Markets Research Update
In this first edition of the series, we look at how yields expanded during the GFC for the major markets across various asset types to see if we can infer what might happen during this current downturn. Retail proved the most resilient sector during the GFC, however, given the existing pressure before the COVID-19 outbreak it is unlikely retail will be the most resilient this time around. The industrial sector is expected to be the most resilient sector this time around.


In this edition of the series we look at what is happening in the debt markets and examine some of the new legislation around offshore acquisitions. The treasure recently announced changes to the FIRB review process in order to protect otherwise well-functioning businesses from takeover so we look at what these changes are and how they might impact the property sector.
