South Korea saw the largest number of funding implementation in 1H2022 with $15.3 billion, buoyed by significant office purchases. Singapore saw an uptick in purchase quantities, hopping 81% y-o-y to US$ 9.3 billion on the back of expensive office and also mixed-use development purchases.
JLL says that this drop in investment volume came from a small amounts in overall offer activity in several of the area’s primary markets. This came as financiers behaved to a tightening up price cycle as well as inflationary problems, the working as a consultant includes.
