A health-check on China’s real estate and construction industries: Are we still on life support?

with Louise Loo, Nicholas Fearnley and April Skinner | Online | March 26, 2024

China’s property downturn continues to weigh on the outlook. Can we be hopeful that the economy will successfully decouple from its old property-led growth model? How much of an offset can state-led construction provide as authorities look to prop the economy up? Join us in a discussion between Louise Loo our China Macro-economist and April Skinner our China Construction economist, as we address some of the FAQs around China’s housing and construction sectors and take a pulse-check on property’s multi-year correction process. Key talking points: How far does China’s real estate downturn have to go? What are the longer term implications for building construction? How much can state-led infrastructure projects prop up the economy? Will the “New Three" Industries keep the economy afloat? Supply chain risks and what this means for costs and construction.

Near-term real estate performance and long term risk

with Christopher Babatope and Mark Unsworth | Online | July 15, 2022

In an environment where cyclical risks are rising, structural risks continue to remain important. Rising geopolitical uncertainty, weakening growth prospects and quickening rate hikes have led us to revise our near-term real estate outlook, while the long-term risks stemming from the climate transition are also ever-present.

We examine where investors can find the best shelter from the impact of higher inflation across the US and how real estate compares to other asset classes.
