I am thrilled to announce we will be introducing our Asia Real Estate Economics Service next week, the final piece of the puzzle in our Global Real Estate Forecasting Service.

The new service will help investors, developers and lenders understand the implications of macroeconomic, geopolitical, financial and climate change on private and public real estate performance across Asia. The first globally consistent and independent set of real estate forecasts, the service will offer regular analysis and commentary from our highly experienced team of real estate economists.

Global Q3 2022 Scenarios – Executive Summary

The global economic outlook has continued to deteriorate. Since our previous global scenarios were released three months ago, we have revised down our baseline forecast for world GDP – and subsequently, our near-term outlook for commercial real estate.
