This year’s survey once again highlighted a preference for local investment. Three quarters of global investors invested only in their macro-region in the last 12 months, and 74% will continue to do so in the next 12 months. This is consistent with last year’s survey, which found that only 10% looked beyond their home region for opportunities.                                                 

The number of truly globally active investors remains modest; only 14% will invest more than 50% of their total real estate allocations outside their home region. However, figures from Real Capital Analytics (RCA) show that the total percentage of cross-border investment as a proportion of global investment has generally ranged between 17% and 19%, although it did peak in 2007 at 31%. So far in 2014, it is 22% of total global investment. Of the largest sources of global capital, Asian investors (46%) are exhibiting a stronger bias towards investing outside their region, while Australian and New Zealand investors are more inward facing, with only 15% looking to invest outside Asia Pacific in the next 12 months.
