Investment activity across the commercial property spectrum continues to be a fluid affair in 2023. While some specific sectors are performing better than others, investors need to understand which ones are remaining resilient against those that are experiencing market headwinds. 
CBRE’s new In and Out report reveals Australia’s latest inbound and outbound investment trends. While it highlights a challenging first half of the year with a 50% dip in the total value of deals across the office, industrial, retail, and hotel sectors when compared to 2022, it’s not all bad news. Some sectors remain buoyant while several Asian countries and the US see the Australian market as a prime offshore investment opportunity. And of course, there’s also speculation around the rapidly maturing BTR sector which is primed to become a key pillar to offshore capital’s portfolio construction across the country.  

This important episode will examine the current debt landscape and the drivers that will shape the market and influence investor decision making this year. CBRE's Communications Director, Kathryn House, will present the topic’s key insights from three of CBRE's leading market experts, 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.
