Singapore takes 2nd spot in investment rankings

Singapore is ranked as 2nd top real estate investment market in Asia Pacific, largely due to the improvement in the city-state's office market which is seeing a lack of supply and rebounding demand. Coworking and other flexible office space operators have become amongst the biggest leasers of office space, while tech firms have also been active in the market.


"Singapore’s stronger performance this year is reflective of the rebound we are seeing over cyclical lows over the past number of years. Its pro-business environment and the growth in crowd data also has placed the republic as one of the more attractive markets for data centres; an alternative asset class with higher yields."
