Asia Pacific ViewPoint - Is Multifamily Asia Pacific's Next Big Investment Opportunity September 2021
Although multifamily has been regarded as an institutional grade asset class in the U.S. and Europe for some time, Asia Pacific’s strong culture of home ownership has resulted in a relatively small investible universe.
Japan has been the lone exception, with the country’s large, liquid, and resilient multifamily market attracting robust interest from both foreign and domestic investors over the past decade.
More recently, factors such as urbanisation, declining housing affordability and regulatory change have piqued investor interest in multifamily in several other Asia Pacific markets, most notably mainland China and Australia.
This Viewpoint explores the growth drivers behind multifamily investment in Asia Pacific; profiles the region’s established and growing multifamily markets; and explains how investors can access this increasingly attractive sector.
