In and Out: Middle East 2015
- The last two years have seen a significant uptick in cross-regional capital flows into global commercial real estate.
- In 2014 alone a total of $125 billion of cross-regional commercial real estate transactions were recorded, up 39% year-on-year, and close to triple the value reported in 2011.
- The first three months of 2015 have already seen a further $32 billion in cross-regional investments, setting the scene for another record year.
- The expansion of cross-regional capital flows was inevitable, considering the rapid growth of wealth in the resource-rich Middle East and following decades of rapid economic development and accumulation of wealth in Asia.
