Asian-based investment sentiment is shifting across the Asia Pacific region and Australia is increasingly positioning itself as a prime destination for foreign money as market momentum continues to steadily recover and international travel resumes. The only factor that could slow down this influx of Asian investment? Pricing.      

In the latest Talking Property podcast, CBRE’s Head of Client Care, Pacific, Kate Heaney, sits down with Dr. Henry Chin, Global Head of Investor Thought Leadership & Head of Research, Asia Pacific, to talk about the multitude of Australian investment opportunities as well as investor sentiment on a macro scale.   

With over 20 years of property research experience, Chin explores and evaluates the most crucial talking points in the Australian property market today. He provides his forecast on the potential of the local life sciences, office, logistics and build-to-rent sectors as well as touching on the growing demand for greenfield developments.        

With Australian migration predicted to explode over the next few years, Chin also identifies what type of commercial spaces local retailers are eyeing in preparation for servicing this new influx of consumers.
