Investment activity in commercial property faced significant challenges in 2022, a trend that was outlined in CBRE’s recently released Pacific Market Outlook report. This year could, however, see a turnaround in investor sentiment on the back of stabilising interest rates and the growing confidence that often accompanies this.  

In the latest episode of CBRE’s Talking Property podcast series, we delve into today’s funding environment and how that's challenged deal flow, not just in Australia but globally. We’ll also examine the major drivers and trends that will shape the market and influence investor decision making this year. Helping to join the dots between research, forecasted investor appetite and real-world transactions are three of CBRE’s leading experts in their fields: Stuart McCann, Head of International Capital for Pacific and Southeast Asia, Andrew McCasker, our Pacific Managing Director of Debt and Structured Finance, and Tom Broderick, CBRE's Australian Head of Capital Markets Research.    

The panel will touch on everything from where overseas capital inflow is heading, to market sectors at the top of investor buy lists, and how ESG-focused assets are shaping investor decisions.
